The Alien World

Praja Do Castelejo near Villa Do Bispo, Portugal

After several days with cloudy sky finally the sun exploded.

This is the most difficult shot I've ever done, there was a strong wind and my huge Manfrotto 055XPro seemed to dance. I had to stick my backpack under the tripod for more stability. Another problem was the salt ..

However this is the result of the long exposure that has saturated colors (I had to slightly desaturate the reds, they were too strong!)

I was hoping to get a reflection of the sky but the wind was too strong and I decided to capture the movement of water.


Have a great Week End!


Update: on Explore!! thanks again!!


One shot, no color correction!! no HDR I use only one filter for correct exposure and polarizer.



I do not like to add my picture in many groups, please do not ask.
