California Dreamy: Long exposures in nature photography

Hazy Wave

An exposure of several seconds captures the process of a wave bathing the rock & attached starfish and shellfish.  By the way, the starfish eat the shellfish.  (The shellfish may be some form of scallop but that's unconfirmed.)

Above the Spray

The starfish keep above the spray in the pursuit of shellfish.  Another exposure of a second or longer.  This image and the above: Nikon F3 camera, Fuji Velvia 100 film.

Pacific Coast, Bodega Head - part 1, Cool and Slow Waves

A slow shutter speed/small aperture work to lend a dreamy quality to this image.  This was an exposure of approximately 2 seconds, late in the day.  Can you make out the fine spray about 1/3 frame from the top right of the picture?  Facing South, near the West parking lot on Bodega Head.

Lower Alpine Falls, Near Lake Tahoe.

This image used a long exposure to blur the flow of the waterfall.

 All images cropped, resized, and lightly tweaked in Photoshop.
