One way to get super long exposures during the daytime is to use a very dark filter. With these photos I used a B+W 10-stop #110 neutral density filter. With the exception of  the Venus Transit photo, I was able to achieve anywhere from 3 to10 minute exposures in the middle of the day to record cloud streaks/misty water.

    Great shots! I’ve been wanting to get one of these filters for a while.

    I like the black and white one’s with the cloud streaks.

    Glad you got the blog back up!

    Great to see that you are back to shooting again. I have had the B+W filter for about 2 years now and I love it. Keep up the great work!

    I had your website in my favorites, but I had not visited for some time. I like the new pictures with long exposures very much. It is nice that you give some details for each shot.
