Combination of two shots with different exposure settings. The first photo foreground was dark with the sun properly exposed. The second photo foreground was visible but the sun and sky was blown out. Used photoshop to merge the photos. Need to be careful on slippery rocks and standing the tripod on the rocks are tricky too.
Stood on the rocky coast near Acadia NP. Happened to have a bird flew toward the sun. Waited for the lighhouse light to turn directly to the camera.
