This photo was taken late in the afternoon. The sun gives the pink granit some extra red glow. I hope you like it.

Great pic! What were the challenges of the location?
Did you make use of any filters? What lens did you use? :lol:
It's really sharp through-out.

any filters..... What lens


The biggest challenge was getting there without braking a leg....the rocks where very slippery. There was a lot of wind and the water hitting the rocks became salty spray.I had some trouble keeping my lens and filters spotless.

I used a B+W polarizer to enhance the color-contrast and avoid some reflections on the wet rocks .Secondly i used a Cokin 121M (2stops) soft edged gradient neutral density filter to darken the sky.

The lens is a altered to fit Canon Efs 10-22.(@13mm). I use it on a Canon 1DmarkII N body.
Iso 100, f 13, 1/20sec on tripod.

Very nice.
Must have been a real challenge to keep the camera steady.
Wind blowing and only 1/20sec !
2 filters ? Must experiment myself one of these days !

Hi Peter,

That is truly a world class shot. With the planning you put into it I guess that's no accident. If the full resolution image is as sweet as the thumbnail I would imagine you'll get a very good price for it. Thanks for sharing.

Bob.

Hi Chris, a filter is typically a piece of coloured glass or plastic which you put in front of the lens to give a special effect. More advanced filters could have a fading effect which is strong at one end, but weak at another, or offer polarising facilities like sunglasses. Some are solid colours, designed to, say, darken the appearence of green grass or a blue sky, but these are for use with black and white imaging. Note in the modern world, many filters can be simulated digitally on your computer.
