The glory of morning on the Oregon Coast. Original image taken at Depot Bay near Otter Rock. The sun was highlighting the clouds in places, making for a dramatic wave that was coming onto the shore. The sky image and wave image were taken at two different spots and combined by using layers in Photoshop CS6. Both images were taken with a Canon EOS 6D and a 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 Do lens @ 300mm, F11, 1/1000s, Iso 500. The final image was processed in Topaz Lens Effects using the gradual neutral density and vignette effects. Birds applied with a bird brush by Obsidian Dawn.
