Thank you. :)

Behind The Lens

Location
Pacific North West or PNW is famous for the rocky shorle-lines with interesting rock formations. These rock formations are called sea-stacks. Bandon beach in Oregon is one such place, with quite a few interesting rock formations. This image was taken there. That rock formation you see in the picture is called 'Witch's Hat' or 'Wizard's hat' .
Time
Sunrises and sunsets are by far my most favorite time of the day. The colors of the light from the rising and the setting sun makes even a mundane scene very very dramatic. Winter skies in Pacific North West specially are known for their dramatic clouds and vibrant colors at dusk and dawn. This shot was taken at sunset, around 4:40pm on 25th Dec, around sunset.
Lighting
The light changes very fast during sunrise and sunset. So timing the shot is very important. The golden light in this picture if because of the time of the day as well as where I stood to take the shot. At a different spot, the light may not have fallen on water or created this silhouette. I waited for the sun to be behind the clouds so that my image is a little more dramatic.
Equipment
It was shot using Canon T2i camera with a Canon 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 USM lens. I had the polarizing filter on turned to maximize the reflections and add more light to my image and shot this at 22 at an effective focal length of 35mm.
Inspiration
I had traveled all the way from Bay Area, California to Bandon beach, Oregon just to look at these sea-stacks and take sunrise and sunset pictures. But the sky did not have any clouds or color the first two days. On the evening before we were supposed to leave, I saw a few low clouds and walked a mile down to these rocks just to get some silhouette pictures.
Editing
Landscape photography at times needs a lot of post processing. This shot however, did not need much processing. It was shot raw and I merely imported it in Lightroom and changed the white-balance to cloudy. That is all. Everything else was done in camera.
In my camera bag
I predominantly shoot landscapes. So besides a camera body, I have a corresponding wide angle lens and a telephoto (100mm or higher) with polarizing filters on both, a GND, an ND filter with a big stopper. If I am going out to shoot milky way at night, I carry my 14mm ultra wide lens.
Feedback
The two best ways to capture sea-stacks is either during a dramatic sunrise/sunset, or with the milky-way in the sky. So it's better to plan accordingly and go and shoot. If the place is not too close by, like it was for me, you'd need a little bit more planning to make sure the weather is right. Once you get the sky right, the rest, I feel, is much easier.
