Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Davenport, California, about 10 miles north of Santa Cruz on the Northern California coast.
Time
Sunset, about 7 or 8 PM.
Lighting
Sunset, since the sky is blocked by a graduated ND filter, the great lighting on the rocks looks supernatural.
Equipment
I used a Canon 1D-X and a Manfrotto tripod along with a "Big Stopper" filter and another graduated ND filter to block the sky. 16mm-30mm Canon lens. Sturdy pair of shoes for the trail down the cliff and the slippery rock surface.
Inspiration
I had seen other photos of this spot and had the feeling that nobody had "nailed it" yet and I wanted to try an extreme long exposure.
Editing
Not much.
In my camera bag
Tripod, ND filters, wide angle lenses. All are necessary for landscape photography.
Feedback
Get a high quality ND filter and a solid tripod. Be sure to wear the right shoes when exploring the tidepools and rocks along the coast. One slip could mean disaster for you or your gear. Lowering one leg of the tripod makes a great waling stick for crossing rocks!
