Under the Storm

This image was taken in an early morning while it was heavily raining. The low and dark clouds showed the bad weather at that moment, and thunders could be heard from far away near the horizon.

It was quite difficult to shoot in the rain. I used an umbrella to protect my camera. This image was a result from two successive shots: one with the combination of 3-stop ND and 2-stop GND (hard) filters so that I could achieve a 282 seconds exposure (f/22, ISO 50) and smooth the clouds, and one with a 2-stop GND (hard) couple of seconds exposure (f/71.1, ISO 200) to capture the wave movement in the foreground.
