I get the feeling of a great mother, protecting her newborn...it's almost emotional. A unique feat, to cause an 'awwwww' with rock formations! Love it!!!

Beautifully captured...Congratulations!

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was captured at Flamborough Head the cliff on the right hand side is Briel Newk, I parked at North Landing Pay and display carpark and its about a fifteen minute walk heading towards the lighthouse on the cliff top path.
Time
I set off for this shoot at 5:00 in the morning arriving at North landing car park at about 5:15 am and after a short walk arrived at location about 5:30 and this shot was captured at 5:53am
Lighting
I quite liked the way the sky was looking and the sea was so still i decided to go for a long exposure and opted to use a little stopper and a 3 stop hard graduated filter over the sky to try and get some detail in the cliffs and sea resulting in a 238 second exposure at f16 and ISO100.
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EF17-40mm f/4L USM, tripod, cable release, Lee 0.9 Graduated ND filter and Lee little stopper.
Inspiration
I love this area of coastline and luckily it is virtually on my doorstep so I visit it regularly but on this occasion the light was superb but with no waves the only option seemed to go the long exposure rout to create some drama in the sky
Editing
I always import to lightroom to make minor adjustments to highlights, shadows, blacks and whites the go to the tone curv section and drag the curve to an s shape before going to lense corrections where I just click the boxes for enable profile correction and remove chromatic abberation then I export to PS to remove any dust bunnies then I usually adjust levels and sharpen using high pass and thats it
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 7D, EF17-40mm f/4L USM, EF 24-105mm f4 L IS USM Lens, 0.3, 0.6 x2, 0.9 x2 hard graduated Lee filters, 0.6 ND filter, Big Stopper, Little Stopper, Circular polariser, landscape circular polariser, manual white balance card, misc cleaning products and a hot shoe spirit level
Feedback
the night before a shoot I always check the weather forecast, tide times cloud maps and the photographers ephimeris for sunrise direction so I can be as prepared as possible then on the morning of the shoot I always arrive on location early so I can take my time setting up and sorting out my composition also it gives me time get a feel for the place then its just a case of being patient and waiting for the light to materialise one thing in my bag that I love is my hot shoe spirit level it just makes setting up in the dark so much easier and at £2.99 it is probably the cheepest.
