I woke up really early to be at the Castro (a 2,000-year-old fort) for sunrise. This is a very popular spot and it gets crowded during the day. At that time though, I was the only one there.
It's a beautiful place. It feels surreal to see all these structures and think that people lived (and fought) here thousands of years ago.
An hour and a half after sunrise (I was already on the way to the car), the fog started to roll in. It was then when I made the best images there, and this is one of them.
Long exposures are usually unpredictable, that's why I usually take more than one (and than two) for each composition. This image is the one I liked the most of a series I made of a group of seagulls on this beach.
A few days ago, I talked about the importante of shooting a scene over and over. This is really important when the scene is constantly changing.
This was the case when I saw the fog rolling in over the town of Porto do Son, A Coruna. I shot a lot of long exposures and regular shots, because there was no one in the world able to predict what that fog was going to do next.
Indeed, only one of the shots actually turned out as I wanted it to, hiding the town but still showing the building next to the shore. The other shots are either hiding too much or not enough.
I had to stay there for more than half an hour, but I got the image I was after. And I'm very, very happy with it. Probably my favorite image of this month so far.
