Congratulations. Very nice shot, would you care to share some details about how you achieved the shot?

Nothing special really. The key was to set up the tripod, mount the camera and just wait for the right light - for the Sun to just behind the rock.

All other normal things shooting rigors were followed -

  • Mirror-up
  • Tripping the shutter with a remote
  • Sturdy tripod (Gitzo 3530S)
  • Good ballhead (RRS BH-55)
As you can see in the EXIF, this was shot with D3 and Nikkor 14-24. Shot it at aperture priority at F/11.

Did very little post processing to increase contrast and some selective sharpening.

Really great shot.  I was surprised some people rated it so low.  Guess you can't please everyone!
