Sean Bagshaw 12/27/2007 2:04:09 PM

Thanks for the kind comments. I had visited this location about 2 hours from my home several times over five years before I happened to be there on this morning. I shot with a 3 stop ND grad but still had to bracket shots for the sky and foreground and then do a manual blend in photoshop to maintain tonal balance throughout the image. #5258552
