190811 Dusk to Dawn - matthew piers robertson • photography writing creative toronto

Sunset over the financial district from the eastern gap, 8:04pm, Friday, August 9.

Sunrise over Ward's Island and the port lands from Centre Island, 6:23am, Saturday, August 10.

The sunset is f/8 and four minutes; the sunrise is f/11 and 26 seconds. Both are through massive neutral density filtration – if memory serves I'm using 16 stops plus a soft three-stop graduated on the sunset, and ten-plus-grad on the sunrise. 

I really should write these things down.

This was my first overnight trip to the islands this summer; rain and other commitments have kept me busy. With luck I'll do one or two more before the temperature drops too much for it to be photogenic.
