It is interesting - I would not say that I am a patient person, not in all things at any rate. I can be positively illogical in the ways I am not patient. I will refuse to change lenses - because it's too much trouble. I will pass on setting up the tripod - because I can't be bothered to do it. But when I'm shooting long exposures like this one, I can stay in one spot for hours - setting up the composition, checking the focus and exposure, inserting the filter, then waiting through a 30 second to two minute exposure. I watch the light and the movement of the clouds and water. I make a second exposure, then a third because the clouds and sea change. I remove the filter to try a slightly different composition - again I focus, check the exposure, insert the filter and wait through another exposure. And interestingly, I don't mind the process. In fact, it is one of the things about shooting long exposures that I enjoy most - the process slows me down.
