Thanks a lot for the kind words, Nostroboy. I have very strong emotions about this photo. As any moment in our lives, it is unrepeatable, but in this specific one I was impressed by the strength of the sea and by its beauty at the same time. Thanks again for stopping by and commenting. Cheers ????

Thumbs up like a scene from GOT

Behind The Lens

Location
It was close to the blue hour on a cloudy day. I was about to going home in Spain since the tide was extremely violent, so I was not even able to go down to the level of the sand. I had walked a lot and “just not to leave like that” I made this picture from a “not too risky” position. When I saw the result of this long exposure I was super excited for having decided to stay.
Time
Blue hour.
Lighting
Natural light.
Equipment
Nikon D750, Nikkor objective and Hoya filters. I calculated the exposure time with Photopills App.
Inspiration
The evening was mystic and I was alone in front of that violent wild sea. I will never forget that moment.
Editing
I used Lightroom and Photoshop for post-processing, popping up the whites and highlights.
In my camera bag
I use Nikon (currently I have D850 and D750), plus Nikkor objectives and Hoya filters.
Feedback
Calculate the time for long exposure with Photopills.
