Description: As the sky appeared to be fairly boring, I decided that I would attempt to create some interesting light, by including the setting sun in the scene. I waited until the sun was low enough so it would be positioned in the image proportionately, and began shooting. To capture a scene like this with such a bright sky, I enlisted the aid of 2 ND grad filters. Putting two grads on the end of my lens is something I rarely do; however in this case it was necessary in my attempt to create an image with an even exposure.
