Hi Stephen, I'm just getting into more advanced landscape photography techniques, and I'd love to know more about how you captured this amazing view. Did you use graduated ND filter, or HDR technique?

Default To cpaton: Hi Colin

Its always quite difficult shooting into the sun like this. Usually we hope for a little more cloud to shield the strength of the sun. Because of this I had to use a second exposure to reveal the disk of the sun. For the main exposed shot I used 2 lee (ND) Graduated Filters giving about 5 stops to help balance the sky and land. I donít think you could ever get this extreme contrast of highs and lows straight out of the camera so a little graduation and merging of frames achieves this. Thanks for your comments and thoughts.
