The title is a reference to the exposure time. 123 seconds, that is how long the exposure was. It was a very quiet morning. I arrived at the lake way before sunrise. I was scouting the location with my headlamp on. Unfortunately, it was an overcast morning, so the sun wouldn’t be visible. Because of this I was on the lookout for a long exposure shot during blue hour.
When I found this jetty, it was still very dark. So dark that even after a 3-minute exposure with my ND10 it was still way underexposed. So, I switched to my ND3 which was used to take this photo. It was a private jetty, So I needed to photography trough a fence. Luckily there wasn’t a bar in the middle otherwise I couldn’t get this shot with the jetty in the centre of the frame.
I really enjoyed this morning even though I had to get up at 5 AM in the morning. The getting out of bed part is hard, but there is something special about the getting up before every one else. Experiencing the world waking up.
