"The Natural Networks IV"

Entangled in the endless stream of thoughts, mirrored by the natural networks of the Earth, anger subsides and serenity finally prevails.

Location: Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal

The story:
Shot recently in Vila Nova de Milfontes, in one of my favourite spots. When the tide is low at sunset, you can witness this intricate and beautiful pattern of exposed rocks. This is just the second time I've been at this spot, as you need to shoot it under the right conditions. It's not easy to get the simultaneous presence of low tide, good sunset, clouds, sun orientation and available time. There were just two photographers shooting this place, including me, showing that Portugal must be one of the most under-rated photo destinations in the world...

This was one of the first times where I had the opportunity to test the new Firecrest filters that Formatt Hitech sent me. Used a 7 stop full ND on this one, along with a 3 stop Soft ND Grad and a 3 stop Reverse Grad (prototype) for the sky.
