First attempt tonight as the sun was setting. I was able to stay for 15 mins only.
No. 10 welding glass (bought 6 different pieces for £4.50....approx $US 7.00) held on with elastic bands around the glass and camera body.
It was not successful because I forgot the shutter release cable so had to keep my finger on the button!
It was a bit rushed for a few reasons and the sun didn't allow me to keep the aperture open for longer to smooth out the water and clouds more.
Work in progress..

going to ISO 100 would've give you a much longer exposure

Yep DreDaze, I realised that at the end.
It was all a bit rushed and will try again very soon.
Cheers :)

Jim, not sure where you're located, but ANY welding supply house in your area SHOULD have them with varying degrees of darkness. I bought mine at my local 'farm supply store'.

I also purchased one of these http://cameracraftinc.​com …ct_guids%5D%5B0​%5D=758755 (external link) and that will allow you to silicone the welding glass to it. (notice that this is 77 mm for my Tamron 70-200mm lens. I bought a 72 - 77 mm adapter ring for my smaller lens to use this on it) I took my glass to a glass shop where they were able to cut it 'somewhat' round (not perfect). I went to my local auto supply store and purchased a tube of Black Silicone. (the black silicone should prevent any light leakage) Use the silicone VERY sparingly to the entire surface of the ring and push it onto the glass. Let it cure for 12 hours. If there is any squeeze out around the inside, VERY carefully remove it with a razor blade. Be VERY careful NOT to scratch the glass with it. Should be fairly hard to scratch it since most of the welding glass has some surface hardening. Clean any smudging residue left from the silicone from both surfaces inside and out.

You're done!!!!!

Now go shoot something! :D

Just do a search for welders glass, there are usually lots on offer. The one I originally got mine from might not be trading any longer.
