I don't have the words to describe how awesome this shot is. To describe it correctly would require a poet!

I see you found the sea cave; I've never been brave enough to wade out there, but I have friends who have. This is one of the nicest images of it I have seen. Great work!

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was shot in a sea cave along Upper Peninsula Michigan's Lake Superior coast not far from the town of Munising and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
Time
This image was shot at sundown, not long after I found the cave while exploring. I was happy to get inside, get set up and capture the image in the nick of time, before the colors faded from the sky.
Lighting
I was happy to have relatively even lighting in what had been a very contrasty scene just a few minutes before.
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Canon EF 16-35mm II L lens on a Manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
I have been enchanted by the Lake Superior coastline since I first noticed some photographs of other photographers, namely John McCormick, that showcased the beauty and amazing landscape of that region of Michigan.
Editing
After HDR processing from 7 original exposures, I preformed some contrast adjustment, sensor spot removal, and color correction
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EF 16-32mm II L lens, Canon EF 24-105mm L lens, Tamron 70-300mm lens, Canon EF 100mm Macro L lens, Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L lens, Hoodman Loupe, Lee Filters, Manfrotto tripod, Think Tank belt and bags
Feedback
Sometimes going to extremes will get you the shot. This scene was recorded after picking my way through a rugged four wheel drive "road," fighting maddening swarms of ferocious biting black flies while not knowing the exact location of this cave nor how I would access it, and wading into nearly waste-deep Lake Superior, all the while, racing the setting sun as I hoped I could get the shot before it would be too late. Sometimes, it really is worth the effort, trouble, and insect bites!
