Behind The Lens

Location
Melkbosstrand (Afrikaans for "Milkbush beach") is a coastal village and beach located on the South West Coast of South Africa, 35 km north of Cape Town. Named after the species of Euphorbiaceae bushes which grow on the dunes and give off a milky latex like substance, it is commonly referred to simply as Melkbos.
Time
This was taken at about 7pm just after sunset.
Lighting
I wasn't planning on taking a shot at the time, neither did I plan the light. I did however have my equipment with me when this scene presented itself. The light was there... I merely had to set up the tripod and capture it.
Equipment
This was shot with a Canon 7D MII, with an EF-S 18-200mm lens on a Tripod with a variable neutral density filter attached.
Inspiration
We were on our way to a beach side restaurant (to the right of this scene) after a late afternoon photo-shoot on the beach. I saw this… stopped in my tracks, set up the Tripod, and shot a series of long exposure shots across the waves.
Editing
Stitched together 3 shots to get the wide angle, some color adjustments in Lightroom for drama and that was that.
In my camera bag
I usually have my Canon 7D MkII at my side with a multipurpose super zoom (EF-S 18-200mm). When shooting outdoors I always have my EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L at my side as well.
Feedback
This is a long exposure shot. Tripod, Variable neutral density filter, cable release and long exposure - just add moving water and the right scene.
