This was a shot I took in Warrnambool. got drenched on the way back after taking the photo :P. I really liked the clouds that were forming and wanted to get the stormy atomsphere. I also have another image with more clouds, but I think this one is a tad nicer.

PP quite severe

- curves on sky for contrast
- HSL to desaturate sky a little as the darkening made it a bit too coloured
- then selectively on the rocks HSL to increase sat
- selective colour on rocks to warm tones
- curves on rocks to lighten them
