Quite a difficult shot to expose. Had to use a 3 stop soft ND Grad filter (Hitech), overlaying a part of the dark portion of the filter over the water, to control the exposure. I also used a 4 stop non-grad ND to achieve the long exposure.

Verano en invierno by johnbeckers

This capture is from mid august this year when I was in Seville but with a temperature there on Christmas Eve of almost 20 degrees (celsius) it could have just been made as well. Summer all year round?

Marinha Dawn by mibreit

I’ve just returned from a two week trip to Portugal. For one week I was staying in the Sintra area near Lisbon, which I had allready visited a few years ago. And for week two I explored the rocky coastline of the Algarve.

This photo, taken before sunrise, was quite an effort to get. Not the hike to the viewpoint though, which takes only 5 minutes. But the changing weather had me return to this view four times until I was satisfied with the result. Two times strong rain stopped me from shooting this view. Standing on that cliff the rain basically comes from all sides. The third attempt was ok, but the photo I took didn’t have any “wow” in it. So I returned a fourth time and was served this intense light, which lasted for 45 minutes.

The best sunrise I ever photographed. And with Praia da Marinha below I couldn’t have asked for a better subject to shoot 🙂

O farol verde (sob o céu vermelho) by johnbeckers

When sunset red unfurls and glows
each beam an opal groove and veil,
till August floats in warm repose
when sunset red unfurls and glows.
The nightingales warble in rows
Bewitching hours as I exhale;
When sunset red unfurls and glows
each beam an opal groove and veil.
