Winter storm in Fall Bay

Fall Bay is a great little bay which always provides some great images. Here I went for a landscape image to show the winter storm and waves pounding the beach, but due to the large selection of boulders and rock formations detail shots are always an option. On the above image I used a 0.9 or 3 stop Hard edge Neutral Density Graduate filter to bring the sky closer to the exposure range of the sensor. In post processing I also darkened the sky further using the graduate tool in Lightroom as I felt the sky was still too bright. With strong wind blowing on the camera and the filter acting as a sail, camera movement was a problem. To reduce this I weighted down my tripod with my camera bag. It gave my back a rest as well!
