This big rock is only photographable at the right tide. Not too high and not too low. It was a rush to get shooting on this particular morning. The waves were crashing all around me as I attached my Hoya ND400 (9 stop) filter to my lens. The sun had been up for over thirty minutes but the thick cloud cover was keeping the light pure. The mood was surreal; you can see a storm cloud moving in from the right, and I knew it wouldn't be long before we'd have to pack up and get out of there!
Moments after this image was captured the sun burst through the gap in the clouds, casting a golden glow on the water. As I welcomed the warmth of the sun, I also know that we shoot was now finished as the light was too harsh. Timing is always key.
