A very still but cloudy night tonight so I headed out from Calshot with the DSLR & tripod packed in a dry bag with the intention of having another go at getting some long exposure photographs. Started to drizzle and get a little misty which made me glad of the good weather proof seals on the Pentax.

Results not quite as successful as last trip. The main issue I found was getting the shots in focus in the pitch black. However, amongst the incredibly blurred images I found a couple which were reasonable. If anyone out there has any suggestions for getting setting the focus manually in very dark conditions I would be very grateful for some advice!

For some exceptional long exposure shots (although not sea kayaking related) take a look at this site.
