Steve, I expect to see this one again. Another beautiful capture. What grade of ND did you use. I am taken aback by the color and detail of the rocks in the foreground.

Thank you Patric, Jeana, Justin, Randy, Judy, and Remi.

Randy it was an off brand resin filter 3 stop hard graduation. I should be using glass filters for a sharper image.
