Hopewell Rock in New Brunswick during high tide. I found it interesting that these naturally shape rocks from the tides coming in and out forms some kind of imagery in my head. Perhaps you see them too. From the extraterrestrial alien to the left to the horse-ape type creature's head to the right

Thank you so much!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, Canada. These unique shapes were created by the high tides of a local river. I highly recommend visit this site as there are many other fascinating rock shapes also created by the tides.
Time
This photo was take around late afternoon around 5pm. It was a bit breezy but quite humid as well. It was a provincial park so it can be busy, but I found people to be very kind and thoughtful to photographers.
Lighting
This was all naturally lite by the sun. I was was positioned beside a rock, so I was in the shade and did not have to wrestle with lens flares.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon Rebel T5i on a 18-200min lens. No flash or tripod used for the shot.
Inspiration
I went to this particular location on a vacation trip and when tour the site, I just thought to my self, I really want to have a great memory of this place. When I saw the two rock formation, I thought oh wow, "would you look at that?! that looks like a dinosaur and an alien head!", The next thing you know, my camera is out and I am taking photos. At that time the tides began to come in,high tides - water rises, so I had to be quick in taking the photo.
Editing
I first imported the photo to Adobe Lightroom and work on the lighting and brought up some of the shadows. I had to increase the sharpness a light as I was working with different depth of field subjects. I also knocked back some highlights for balance.
In my camera bag
I would love to have better camera equipment but at the moment I have a small budget for camera equipment. In my camera bag, I have a Canon Flash, 18-200mm Telephoto lens, Canon Rebel T5i, an 18mm fixed lens, some extra batteries, a polarize lens adapter and a shutter remote for the T5i.
Feedback
Be always on the lookout, think outside the box, being able to capture beautiful sights around the world is a gift. Enjoy photographing, sharing your capture with people can inspire people and make a great difference in the world. :)
