Sullivan Bay from the top of Bartolome

Sullivan Bay from the top of Bartolome - Canon 1Ds3, 24-105 @ 47mm, f/8, 1/15s, ISO 100
On the fifth day of our photographic trip in the Galapagos we arose early in the morning so that we could climb to the top of Bartolome Island in time to photograph the surrounding area shortly after sunrise. I struggled with this scene for a while, trying all kinds of compositions. In the end, left it unprocessed for the last couple of years not really finding much inspiration to work on it until this morning. I remember that I used a soft graduated neutral density filter in the field to get the sky under control but I still had to do some local tonal working to get the overall image to look right.
