Our Own Private Bay

Yes you read that right, we managed to get a bay to ourselves for 2 nights! That bay being a tiny one called Petit Byahaut, just round the corner from Wallilabou Bay. I had planned on spending some time on the small beach in the bay to take some pictures of the boat, but we anchored facing the entrance to the bay with the stern tied to a tree to keep us in position and this made some some pretty uninteresting pictures during daylight hours.

We did a couple of dives in the bay, 1 either side, but I mainly focused of video rather than photos due to the swell that came into the bay. I did however try my hand at some Long Exposure Starscapes again, like I had done in Western Australia about this time last year.

The results are a bit grainy but I’m still happy with them as I am still fairly new to this style of photography. The picture below is probably my best attempt this time round, the rest have the boat in which, with the lights on, created lots of motion blur and can be quite distracting in the image.

If I were to do more of this type of photography I would look into buying a remote shutter, enabling me to bring my iso down and hold the shutter open for longer without disturbing the position of the camera.

Sorry for the lack of images in this post, but I guess it is nice to have a short one every now-and-again.

Two questions to finish this time around. First, have you ever been in a private bay overnight? Second, have you ever tried Long Exposure Scarscape Photography?

Thanks For Reading!
