Having a lot of cloud cover in Abu Dhabi is pretty rare, and yesterday the opportunity was there to go test out my 10-stop ND. A shot of the Hodariyat Bridge was always on my mind, but I had no idea what composition I would come up with and definitely wanted something different from the other shots I have seen.
I arrived an hour before sunset and it was an awesome sight with God-rays bursting through the sky. I knew I wanted to show the dynamics of the clouds in my frame, so I found an almost vertical composition and knew that this was the one I wanted. 128 seconds after I snapped the shutter, I got my result.
Just as the sun set, most of the clouds dissipated and I was very happy that I managed to be on the bridge at the perfect time. This is my first attempt at creating a fine-art B&W long exposure photograph, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it!
