Living in Santa Cruz where there are countless photo opportunities up and down the coast. Sometimes you don't even need to go far to find something interesting to photograph.
The symmetry and simplicity of this bed of rock formation really caught my eye. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to test drive the nikon d4 along with a nikkor 17-35mm lens. I used a 3 stop and 2 stop soft ND grads stacked to help balance the sky with the foreground.
