Be­cause the sun was quite high by the time we took this shot of Dun­stan­burgh Cas­tle, the light was very di­rect. There was noth­ing we could do to make the cas­tle more dra­matic, but the waves were pound­ing the coast­line, so we de­cided to use this to add drama to the shot. To get a slow enough shut­ter speed to blur the wa­ter, I at­tached my vari­able ND fil­ter, which en­abled me to vary how much light was reach­ing the sen­sor. We ex­per­i­mented with var­i­ous shut­ter speeds, but this shot, taken at 1.3 seconds, pro­vided the per­fect com­pro­mise be­tween blur­ring the waves and cap­tur­ing their move­ment.
