Sunset at Muir Beach

Sunset at Muir Beach

Driving westward across the North Bay, I was facing thick clouds looming on the horizon. Would the clouds break during my stay at Muir Beach? Upon reaching Marin county the view was even bleaker: Clouds or fog clung to Mt Tamalpais' peak. Onward then, 2 hours till sunset.

And the clouds did part and the sky cracks open.

I shot this with an ND filter on and stopped down to f/22. The shots are auto bracketed from -2 to +2 EV and run through Photomatix then digitally blended with original exposures using Pixelmator.
