That morning we had planned to photograph sea birds at Elliston, Newfoundland, Canada. This place is well known for its large population of Atlantic Puffin. What a beautiful bird it is! At around noon, on our way to another planned site, I saw these magnificent wildflowers contrasting with the colors and textures of the shoreline cliffs. I marveled how these flowers could live in a such rugged location. There was no wind. The sea was calm.
I installed my tripod very low and put my wide angle-lens with an ND filter. I exposed to the right (ETTR). It took 60 seconds. The motion effects of the long exposure accentuated the beauty of the sea and the sky. These wildflowers are permanent spectators of this beautiful landscape. During that trip, I had the chance to get close to whales, icebergs, birds, beautiful landscape and shoot them all. I will have to go back.
