This is one of those photos that I've been thinking about for a while now since I got my first digital camera but up to this point I've never been able to get the result I was after.
This isn't it either but it's getting close so I guess I'll work on it and you may see more similar photos in the future.
This is from the English NW coast where I grew up. It was photographed at dusk using an extreme wide angle lens with two neutral density filters screwed onto it to bring down the light by 16 stops and allow me to get a (sort of) decent exposure at a very slow 4 minute shutter speed.
A by-product of using two stacked filters over a lens this wide is the dark vignette which is where the light entering the lens is catching the edges of the filter but I don't object to it in this instance - in fact i think it adds something to the photo.
