Interesting Photo of the Day: River Sunset with ND Filter

There are sunsets and then there is this. Captured on the Beaver River up North, this image has been aptly described as simultaneously depressing and elating. Depressing, as very few have the opportunity to take time out of their daily grind to experience something like this in person, and elating because these moments do actually exist on the face of our Earth:

Photographer Tucker Brastad shot this beautiful sight on a camping trip with a Nikon D7100 paired with a Tokina 11-16mm ultra wide-angle lens. His settings were 30 seconds at f/7.1. He used a 10-stop ICE ND filter to get that smooth effect of the water and sky.
