Rocks Right Up to the Sky

Playing with the big sky again. This is actually a smallish patch of rocks in a big sand beach, but getting down behind it and shooting over it to the ocean and horizon makes it look like huge plane. Again the trick is getting a balanced exposure. This is very true to life. Then the only trick was finding the right pattern of rocks. 🙂

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent. F6.3 @ 1/250th @ ISO 160. Programmed auto (tip and exposure lock to adjust exposure for sky and a bit of program shift for depth of field).

In Lightroom, Recovery for the sky. Fill Light for the foreground. Blackpoint right. Added Clarity and just a touch of Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset.
