I photographed this sunset on an old pier during my last evening in Rockport, Texas. I went to Howard Murph Memorial Park to see if I could find a new foreground and something more interesting than the same features I photographed previously. So I decided to take a hike through some fairly difficult brush and tall grass when I arrived at a point just north of where the park is located. This old pier and the tree growing by the shore were a good alternative. The only problem was that there were no clouds. But, the colors were magnificent nonetheless. I used my Syrp Variable Neutral Density filter to smooth out the water to maximize the sun’s reflection.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II Lens set on 31mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/14, shutter speed at five seconds and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability and my Syrp Variable Neutral Density filter for a longer exposure. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
