An early morning long exposure workshop in St Kilda


This morning I had to get up very early to head to St Kilda for a long exposure workshop. As I was heading there I was driving through so much fog. It was fantastic and I would love to have stopped to take photos, but I had to get to going. We are getting so much fog this year, so I am really excited as the last few years we have had almost none. I need to get out more.

As I got closer to St Kilda the fog was disappearing, and I was worried, but I was so happy to find when I got there that there was still some.


It was hard to see the kiosk at the end of the pier. I loved the pink as well as the sun was coming up. I look at this image and all I can think about is how cold it was. I should have worn more clothes.

We went out onto the pier, it was even colder out there. Though after awhile, as the sun come out, it got warmer. Of course, a coffee helped, helped a lot.

Towards the end of the workshop the sun came out and we were getting very warm.


I got many great shots and from what I’ve seen from our special workshop group on Facebook, they got some great images as well.

My next workshop is next Saturday in at Docklands. I decided to change things up this time and do an afternoon session. I hope there will be some clouds.

  1. Very nice images, Leanne! Now that I’m back from traveling with little or no Internet access, I can catch up with your blog again.

  2. That was a lucky opportunity to capture a harbor scene when the water was still for such a long time to make a perfect long exposure photo. Great work, Leanne!

    1. Yes, though it can happen a bit here, I think it is because it is in a big bay, so we often get conditions like that. It was perfect for long exposures, thank you Peter.

  3. Nice shots. Love the last one especially.

    It’s so hard to get up early. I haven’t done it in months. But when you do, the coffee is that much better. 😉

  4. Oh, the serenity of that last shot. Why don’t I live in Australia…i would have loved learning from you.

    1. I don’t know, why don’t you live here Leya, lol, I feel that way about places from around the world too. Thank you.
