March 2022 – Seogwipo, Jeju Island random seaside long exposure

On my trip to Jeju Island back in March 2022, I spent some time on the coast of a random location in Seogwipo on an evening during sunset. Unfortunately, there was a terrible overcast. So I couldn’t see any colors associated with a clear day sunset. Still, I wasn’t deterred from venturing out to find some interesting spots to take a few long-exposure photographs. I ventured out over the volcanic rocks with my tripod and camera in hand. My shoes and feet got wet as I photographed at the chosen spot as the water was slowly coming back in over the rocks I walked out to, soon to be completely submerged after my departure. I was happy with the results of my short voyage. I often lean towards black and white, but for such an image, I found it much more appealing with the beautiful tones and colors.
