some pretty intense direct sunlight and a heavy sky this made for a challenging shot.
I shot frames with the foreground exposed at single exposure stops with my finger covering the sun and so reducing the chances of flare.
i used a lee three stop grad and a single stop soft grad reversed and shot exposures to cover the range in the sky.
edited in lightroom then blended in photoshop.
