Well, what can I say – patience pays off. I was up on the Ölberg in Germany waiting for a couple of hours for the sun to set at the right angle. Just before it finally settled behind the thick layer of clouds in the background I was able to get away with a few decent shots. This is one of them.
Since I lost my remote a few weeks ago and have been able to get a new one yet (on order) I simply used the self-timer (2sec) and adjusted the other settings accordingly. Works almost as good as remote. I used a Nikon D7000 and the 12-24mm lens with a Hitech 3-stop GND and Hitech 3-stop ND filter. All mounted on a (not very sturdy) Manfrotto tripod. This has to be my next investment. I realized this, when the camera started to tilt forwards slowly while taking long exposures :) – not a good sign usually.
Hope you guys like it.
