Horseshoe Park, Rocky Mountain National park, Colorado.
I can honestly say that this is one of the hardest shots that I have ever taken, the exposure was completely just whacked, and it was very much a struggle to get it all to come together, in the end I went with my Grad ND, CPL, and used my cameras ability to shoot in camera HDR on a setting of 3 set to panoramic. In the end though I think I got it! The light was crazy, with rain showers at times, smoke in the air from a wildfire, and Autumn, when the skies are often beautiful much of the time. One great sunset, that I was lucky enough to be around for!
I hope you all like it
