Pathway To The Sun

This location on the Keahole Point coastline has been the most difficult to photograph. The range from highlights to shadows is extremely steep because of the dark lava rocks of the foreground against the direct sunlight. In order to achieve somewhat of a balanced shot I stacked two 0.9 RND filters together, but even with that I had some adjustments in Lightroom.
Even though I like the dramatic feel of this shot, I still don’t feel like I got the shot I wanted.
