I’ve had a Hoya PRO ND 1000 (10 stop) Neutral Density filter for a while, and been itching to get out and use it with my Fuji 10 – 24mm lens. Weather and work conspired to make me wait longer than I wanted to, but finally took a trip to Worbarrow Bay this morning and got to try it out.
I arrived at 8.45 and the gate to Tyneham and Worbarrow Bay was already open – this area forms part of the MOD Lulworth Range walks and access is only available at weekends and school holidays.
The weather was perfect, bright blue skies and the odd fluffy white cloud, and enough breeze to cause a few waves breaking along the shoreline.
I set up the tripod and with Fuji X-T1 + 10-24mm lens and the Hoya attached, I took various views walking westwards along the pebble beach, and then returned finishing in the small bay known as Pondfield, just to the east of Worbarrow Tout.
