The coast of Portugal never disappoints.
I'm still alive! Not only that but also in the middle of a trip to Portugal, one of my favorite countries. Currently near Porto, I will be hitting Lisbon and Sintra in the next few days.
This is going to be a very short trip, a sort of preparation for the 4 months we will be spending in the US starting very soon!
Expect some videos and images from Portugal in the next few days.
This is the first image I made in Portugal. We stayed some days in Sintra trying to adjust after the long flight and also giving Luna a break after so much travelling.
This spot was a short walk (less than 5 minutes by foot) away from our apartment, so even though I wasn't planning on making an image this time, I felt compelled to unpack all my camera gear and tripod to head down there during sunset and shoot.
I used a 10-stop ND filter to make this image, I exposed it for almost 3 minutes.
At first, I wanted to exclude the little pool in the foreground, but I couldn't find a safe spot to do so. Since I had to have it in the foreground, I made it go all the way to the bottom right corner.
The light wasn't as good as I thought it would be, and the cliff is rather dark as a result. Still, I like the composition and the colors.
