Where the Ocean Roars

I just came up with this title as it is what I think when I look at this shot. Grass and other greenery is usually the only exception to shooting in direct and strong daylight, however I liked the movement of the waves here and the birds resting on the rock as well as the background. the light was at the right angel and at the start of Golden hour, so all in all it turned out alright.
I used a bit of focus stacking, and HDR in this process and I had a very hard time in the sky to prevent banding. and thanks you Jimmy McIntyre I got a few tips on preventing it.
This is on the coast of Haramsøya out on the Fuglefredet Området basically a bird sanctuary where you can also on occasion see seals and various marine mammals. The home to a falcon and a few eagles and nesting area in the summer months and not allowed to walk here during that period.
if you want to get a nice crash of the waves my method is putting on a intervolameter and wait until you get one you like, and using StarStax you can also make a long exposure look similar to the ND filters. Lepsøya is seen in the distance.
sorry it has been so long since I've posted, but I hope you like this one.
