Back to the Sunda Kelapa lighthouses

My earlier Sunday morning visiting to the Sunda Kelapa lighthouses left me desperate to come back with a tripod to catch them at first light.

So Tuesday morning I set out to arrive at 5am before heading to the office for a regular day.

I got to the harbour just as the boatmen, who sleep on their boats, are just starting to get up. I had a head torch, tough shoes and long pants to help navigate the exceptionally slippery rock platform.

Shot with a Sony A7rii using the Sony 16-35mm F4. Used a Haida ND and Grad filter to keep the exposure times to about 2-4 seconds while at F16 during sunrise.
