St Michael's Mount @ sunset

Image Location : St Michael's Mount; Marazion, Cornwall, TR17 OHS.

St Michael's Mount is a small tidal island in Mount's Bay, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The island is a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between mid-tide and low water. The population of this parish in 2011 was 35. It is managed by the National Trust, and the castle and chapel have been the home of the St Aubyn family since approximately 1650. The earliest buildings, on the summit, date to the 12th century.

This image was captured from the beach about 10:00pm using a tripod-mounted Sony A7R2 camera and a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II lens set to 35mm and manually focused on the rocks. The camera was set to Bulb with a 252 second exposure at f/8, ISO 200 and daylight white balance. I used a Formatt-Hitech Firecrest 16 stop screw-on neutral density filter to enable the four-minute exposure time. The RAW processing and final adjustments were all done in Photoshop CC.
