Another night paddle. Very calm conditions tonight but the forecast clear skies didn’t materialise. However, I took the opportunity to play with a 50-200mm lens on the Pentax and ran through several takes of each photo making small adjustments to ISO, then exposure time to compare and contrast the results.

A reasonable moon made occasional appearance allowing me to use much quicker exposure times – around the 8-10 seconds mark which help reduce the blurring when I posed in the photo. I’ve included the four best shots. As ever, click any image to see a larger version.
