I’ve never realized HOW quickly the tide can rise. I was happily shooting castle Stalker from the shoreline (I’d thought) with quite long exposures – around 1 minute, which makes 2 min per shot, including the long exposure noise reduction. And I suddenly couldn’t fail to note that my feet became rather wet. Ok, so be it. I really wanted that shot.
But then I remembered that I left my backpack with all the gear near the shoreline. A quick glance made me realize that it had turned into a nice floating device, course set away from shore.
You have no idea how quickly one can run through ankle-deep water even with a shouldered tripod+camera. It’s just a matter of motivation…
But at least the shot turned out quite nicely in the end.
