This is a digital blend of the Thames Barrier, the awe-inspiring 520-metre construction stretching between Woolwich and Silvertown in East London. The barrier was built in the early 1980s and was designed to protect Central London from tidal flooding and river flooding, and comprises 10 steel gates, each weighing more than 3300 tonnes and which, when raised, reach a height equivalent to a five-storey building.
The image was taken over the course of an hour and a half, and incorporates elements from eight-, ten- and twelve-minute exposures, blending the warm late-afternoon sunshine striking the gates, the calm early-evening sky overhead, and the rich blue-hour hue that was reflected in the construction’s steel.
During my stay in Sur, I noticed this boat standing close to the shore for almost 2 days non moving. The bay is fully covered by the seawater so I waited till the morning to have a low tide to access the location due that my mission is to shoot with Zeiss Otus 55mm & not a wide zoom lens, so I have to be get closer within the distance range. I end up diving in the mud but I’m glad with the final result.
The point here is to prove that the Otus 55 is not only a prime lens for portraits but you can still use it for landscape & benefits from the lens quality.
