When did you take the photograph?
August 2012

What equipment did you use?
Nikon D800E, 20mm f/2.8 lens

Please describe how you got this photo.
My aim was to do make an image contrary to what I shoot more often—long exposure photography. In full sunlight, I set my camera to ISO 3200 to obtain a high shutter speed with maximum depth of field. I photographed with Live View through a waterproof bag. Drying off the outside lens often, awkward camera positions and tight finger space were some of my main challenges.

{loadposition inpage} Did you use any special techniques?
Even though the D800E noise is fairly minimal at high ISOs, I used Noise Ninja to help lessen the noise.
