I tried to frame this first Hot Shot so there was in­ter­est in ev­ery part of the scene, with the wave-washed rocks in the bot­tom third of the frame, the vil­lage in the mid­dle and the moun­tain be­hind in the up­per third. I ex­per­i­mented a bit with fo­cal length, but in the end I went for the widest end of my 24-70mm. I wanted to keep the ex­po­sure to around two sec­onds to cap­ture the move­ment of the waves [see be­low], so I had to open up the aper­ture to f/5.6 to let in enough light for a cor­rect ex­po­sure. This is slightly wider than I’d nor­mally go for a land­scape, but be­cause I was us­ing the wide-an­gle end of my lens, I knew f/5.6 would still give me a pretty de­cent depth of field.
