Stunning!

Behind The Lens

Location
The stack is called Queen rock many years ago there used to be another stack behind it called King rock the cliff on the right is called Breil Newk, I am quite lucky because this is a ten minute drive and fifteen minute walk from where I live it is of course Flamborough Head in East Yorkshie in the UK
Time
I remember this shoot like it was yesterday I set off from home around 4:30am on the 4th May 2015 I parked up at North Landing car park and set off on the walk to this little cove after five minutes I glanced back at my car to see the police had pulled up and were checking it out, I was in two minds as whether to continue or go back when they got back in their car so I continued onto Breil Newk to take some shots of the light house then as the sun came up I retreated to this little cove in Breil News shadow then at about 4:50am the sun had risen high enough to create this beautiful lense flare
Lighting
I used the big stopper and a 3 stop hard grad giving me a four minute exposure and corrected white balance in lightroom
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EF17-40mm f/4L USM, tripod, cable release, Lee 0.9 Graduated ND filter and Lee Big stopper.
Inspiration
I am quite lucky as this strech of coast is on my doorstep and I know the area very well, I had started taking shots from on Breil Newk but once the sun rose above the horizon decided to move back into the shadow of Breil Newk as the sun rose above the cliffs I decided to compose my shot with the sun just out of frame, it was just an experiment really with pleasing results
Editing
First it was imported to lightroom to set the camera profile and correct some lense distortion before reducing the highlights a fraction and lifting the shadows once this was completed I exported to Photoshop to set threshold for black and white also to reduce saturation a fraction then I reduced noise with my neat image plugin lastly the image was sharpened using a high pass and that’s 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
Feedback
Plan carefully but keep an open mind and follow the light also be prepaired to experiment
