Paul, this is fantastic. I have been to Davenport many times but not to this place. How do I get there?

Spent New Year's Day with my little sister and good buddy Jean Day, shooting in Davenport at the famous crack. What a cool place this is. We were really lucky to have it almost to ourselves, but we got there fairly early hoping for just that. Sitting shoulder to shoulder on those rocks, our comps are similar. Timing is everything here.

While we had a decent sunset, it was next to impossible to come away with anything presentable without planning an exposure blend (currently lacking in nay ND filtering). I managed to complete this one with three exposures, but with the not-quite-set sun in there, beaming its radiance though the frame, it was a bit of a challenge. This also included removing some unsightly lens flares. All that said, I'm happy with the result. Oh, and one more thing, if you look closely, you can see the water flowing out in the foreground and flowing in at its opening - I love that.
