Although, the Tokina 12-24mm is not meant for full frame cameras, it can be used on a full frame body like the Canon 5D, but I found that I couldn't go wider than about 20mm without vignetting. I used a Lee 3 stop hard edge graduated neutral density filter to balance the exposure between foreground and sky.
I visit this beach often during stormy weather. When the storm begin to clear up, it can leave behind a dramatic sunset. This is one of a series of rocky beaches along the southern California coast in the Malibu area. The best time of year is winter because that's when we get most of our storms and the sun sets over the water.
