An amazing, and peaceful, beach in Azores.
It was quite cold, but the kids had the best afternoon playing with the black sand, that we don't have on the mainland.
And this black sand creates such a wonderful contrast with the water foam! Gorgeous place!
Praia de Mosteiros, São Miguel, Azores, Portugal

Behind The Lens

Location
On the beautiful Portuguese island of São Miguel, in Azores
Time
About 1 hour before sunset
Lighting
Lighting / exposure was very hard due to the high contrast between the black sand and the sky. What makes it more beautiful, also makes harder to shoot.
Equipment
Sony A65 with Sigma 10-20 f3.5, and tripod
Inspiration
The contrast between the black sand and the white sea foam
Editing
Some to darken the sky
In my camera bag
Camera, a few lens, and a 10 stop filter
Feedback
Take a ND Grad filter. Would have made the exposure much easier
