...on the rocks...

Just as you are settling down to a nice quiet evening the noise of the Coastguard helicopter drowns out the tele...somebody has gone on the rocks...



I gather they will try to pull it off about midnight so any tips on how to get better images much appreciated...

That water looks cold

I rather like those rather weird noisy halos around the lights. I'm not sure you have much choice of settings with a scene like that, you need a high ISO or the movement will be blurred, so it's going to be noisy.


btw - did they get their boat back?

Yep...it was pulled off later that night ...
the halos in the first image are from a Nikkor 85mm @f2
this later image is the 70-300 wide open with reflections from the UV filter I later worked out
