Rays of god

It must have been one of my most pleasant photographic evenings I have ever had.
I was constantly roaming around the area, finding new locations while the sun and the clouds where just creating lovely combinations.
I stood at this beach, a crowded summer beach but empty and lonely at the time of the shooting, waited to find a nice spot and then suddenly the sun and rays where forming what you can see in the shot.
Framed and shot again! :)

this is awesome! I have  a question though, how do you get your iso down to 50? I have a 5d mark III and can't get it below 100

:jawdrop: This photograph is incredible! The editing is near-perfect. The sand could be a little less sharp, but apart from that this photograph is phenomenal :) The waves in this photo appear as if moving even while it's still, which I'm guessing has to do with the use of the neutral density filter. If I had to rate this photo, I'd have to give it 41/2 out of 5 stars!
