A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving...

- Lao Tzu.

 

This is the Annisquam Light which is located at Gloucester, MA. The last time I was here I didn't feel like I did justice to this beautiful location and I was a bit more prepared for this shot. As expected the sunset was beautiful and there were a lot more clouds in the sky than last time also a lot more mosquitoes and ticks.

 

I set this shot very fast as the sunset had already began and used 2 Cokin ND grad filters as a makeshift reverse ND grad and also bracketed exposures. Bracketing was done to be on the safer side but combination of both the methods worked like a dream and I would say this was closest to what my eyes were seeing. I am really glad I could retain the colors of the grass and get the foreground rocks correctly exposed. Seems Like I am getting the hang of this.

 

Also I want to thank all those who commented and Favorited, you have no idea how much it encourages me to go out and get some more shots.

Enjoy and have a great summer.
