Sunset - College Cove, Trinidad, California, USA

Single Exposure, 210 Seconds, 10 stop ND FIlter, 2 Stop Grad ND Filter, 10mm, F11, 100 Iso, Tripod, Shutter release cable, Wet boots.

I got my boots soaked within the first five minutes I arrived at this beach. I'm used to lakes - I haven't been to the ocean much, so of course I would overlook the oceans very unpredictable waves. While composing my next shot, a random wave ran past me leaving me drenched from mid thighs down to my feet. My pants dried quickly but the boots were wet and unwearable for the next several days. This sunset was shot within College Cove, in Trinidad on my first night staying there. This is the extreme northern end of the beach facing northwest. I was also caught a bit off-gaurd by how fast the colors in the clouds appeared before the sun was completely set - In the mountains I'm used to waiting a good twenty minutes after the sun has dissappeared before seeing color. Taking long exposures like this requires a filter that cannot be seen through, so it takes some time and concentration composing a shot, however the ocean seems to demand your attention or else you could get washed away - these two do not mix well! :)
