A dreamy two minute exposure of Bass Rock.
Taken in flat and dreary conditions with a 15 stop ND filter. This is a personal favourite of mine and good example of how this style of photography is rewarding when the light is poor for other subjects.
Bass Rock is a 100 m high volcanic plug that lies 2 km off the coast in the east of Scotland. It was once used as a brutal prison but is currently uninhabited. More than 150,000 gannets nest on the rock. Each white dot you see is gannet sat on an egg. The long exposure masks the ever changing swarm of gannets buzzing around the rock.
