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 ????

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.
