Hi Hulabaloo

The image was taken on an overcast morning and by using a 10 stop ND filter I was able to use a long exposure of 149 seconds. It's not the easiest of filters to use because when its on the lens you can't actually see anything through the viewfinder because the glass is so dark, which means you have to focus and compose before placing the filter on the lens. The filter I use is a B&W ND-110 (3.0).

Hope this answers your question.

Thanks all for the comments.
