Long exposure in B&W of a line of rocks vanishing into Lac Léman

A B&W long exposure image featuring a line of rocks vanishing into a lake, with dark clouds and the French Alps in the background
27mm – f/9 – 241 seconds – ISO250 – D800E with 24-70mm f/2.8

Last week I went out to Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) hoping that the weather would clear up just in time to allow me to shoot the sunset with some drama in the sky. And it did. The colour results I got that evening were quite nice. However, I couldn’t resist converting this particular one to black and white.

This B&W long exposure image features a line of rocks in the lake, which is there to break the waves a bit. In the background you can see the silhouette of the French Alps. As the waves were actually rolling over these rocks that evening, I shot the scene with an exposure time of 4 minutes to create a bit of a mystical effect on the rocks. The dark clouds and the soft evening light helped to create a moody atmosphere. Hope you like this B&W long exposure image!

I used a Lee 10-stop ND filter and a Lee 3-stop ND filter to get the exposure time of 4 minutes. I processed the image with Adobe’s Lightroom 4.1 and Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2.

    Amazing image, Johan – thanks for sharing the setup.

  47. Love it !

  48. I just went through a banding problem with a sunset pic, hard to get rid of in post when one doesn’t know how

    • Author

      Thanks Tim! Well I usually know how to avoid it.

      • Well Johan whats your secret to avoid banding before or in PP if you don’t mind sharing :)

        • Author

          the trick usually it to keep (or even add) a bit of noise in larger gradient areas 🙂

    wow it looks like some sort of alternate world where rocks float. this is a picture that just gets you but you dont get it

  55. i wish there were rocks all the way to the middle of the lake so i could walk on them

  56. Poetry in photography Johan ! Beautiful work!

  57. Kevin Kordosky 7 years ago

    Black and white does it justice, well done.

  58. Love the detail 😀 and the excellent processing. 

  59. Peter Sandin 7 years ago

    Beautiful Johan!! I’m sure it would work in color too but with a b&w conversion like this you can’t go wrong!

  60. Dominique Dubied 7 years ago

    Very nice capture Johan! I love the details in the rocks.

    Enchanting Johan. And the location looks very familiar to me. ;)

    • Author

      thank you Athena! I like the word “enchanting” 😀
      Yes, you know this place. I went back one night last week when it was very very windy and raining a lot. A gamble that worked out perfectly. The best one of that night still needs processing: the pier :)))

      • Athena Carey 7 years ago

        My pier? 😉
        I have a nice one of it too. Processed, but not yet shared.

        • Author

          that’s what you get when we hang out together a lot 😀 I don’t think people mind if there is some overlap in subjects 🙂 I’ll keep mine on my disk for a while. Pretty sure you are going to like it though :D

          • Athena Carey 7 years ago

            In all fairness, I was so excited when I found that pier on Google maps, that I know I hogged it that morning. ;)

    @Tom: thanks Tom!! Yes. I am loving square crops more and more 🙂

  96. Author

    @E.E. Giorgi: thank you 😀 I always think I will, but I never do. I usually decide on either color or B&W, process accordingly and then move on to the next image. I am planning to create a color LE gallery at some point though, so who knows 🙂

  97. Rhandy Cruz 7 years ago

    Amazing piece. I love the stillness of the water contrasting with the storm clouds over head. This is inspiring me to do more long exposures with my 10 stop filter. Thanks for sharing.

  98. Lilia Lin 7 years ago

  114. Joseph Eckert 7 years ago

    Fantastic work, love this use of black and white

  115. H. Larsson 7 years ago

    This is not a Photography – it’s art!
    Amazingly beautiful photo Johan! I like silence and desolate as the picture shows. Leading the path to sadness or happiness – That decision can only be decided by the viewer
    Right now it is a beautiful fog over most of the Nordic forest lake, you’re lucky you can see a moose look forward edge of the forest, or a fairy dancing on the water meadows. All trees are dressed in fabulous autumn colors. Next year, you should consider a visit to Sweden or Norway – I know you are the right man to capture the right feeling.

      thank you!!! Yes, Scandinavia would be a great place for me to visit. Thanks for the trust 😀 

  116. Author

    @Rhandy: thanks for the compliment Rhandy and nice to meet you here! Make sure to get an extra 2 and 3 stop filter, as that 10-stop won’t suffice most of the times 🙂
    @Lilia: your comment rocks Lilia! Dank je wel. Alles goed?
    @Mikko: glad you like my poetry Mikko 😉 

    • Rhandy Cruz 7 years ago

      Thanks Johan. I did try stacking a polarizer on top of my 10 stop just to see what would happen. I got strange color cast issues (nothing that I wasn’t able to correct in post) but it worked really well when converted to b+w.

      • Author

        that helps a bit as well yes, but not ideal 🙂 Eventually you will get the extra ND’s 😀

  149. Don´t think so Johan, the Ironman distance is to demanding, so if I take up the challenge again, it will “only” be the half Ironman 😉
    I´m coming to the Alp´s next sommer, participating in the Mont Blanc Marathon, so maybe we could make a little photowalk? :)

    Johan, a stunning shot, I’m going to have to get one of those big stoppers for my bag. I was checking featured photographers at photoshelter and recognized you from google +.

    Your blog is doing great with a ton of commentors – congrats
