The calm after the storm during Blue Moon

Genova, Liguria. It was a rainy day, the first summer rain after a long time. The weather was improving and I decided to go down to the beach to take some photos, to breathe fresh air. In that night there was quite a lot of cloud cover the sky but it made for subtle yet dramatic evening light from Blue Moon. So I set a good exposure time to give the desired effect; I thought that 8 seconds of exposure and f/7.1 were a great compromise solution, using low ISO around 200.


The final result could already be able to appreciate without zoom, the high and strong contrast between the white foam and the dark color of the rocks and the sea was exalted already, just long exposure was completed. So I waited until quite late and used this long exposure time to give the dreamy feel to the moving sea water. It was so magic.


Mia Genova difesa e proprietaria. Ardesia mia. Arenaria.
