Barrika Beach by wilcowesterduin

Ever since i saw photos of the famous Barrika coast in the Basque country, i wanted to go there and shoot it myself. Two days ago i finally did! I met a fellow 500px photographer there, as well: Pablo Ocasar! Also have a look at his wonderful seascape work!

Although this scene is not what Barrika is famous for, I loved this angle just as much! Please click on the image to see it on black!

Kostaldea Igeldo by wilcowesterduin

This is NOT a HDR picture! NEITHER is it a long exposure for a running cloud effect in the sky. NO filters were used! This is the result of a manually done technique in a single 1/10 sec. exposured shot. The sky really was like this. Nature had a sort of it’s own LE effect, this time! For maximum definition i set aperture at f/22, which gave me 1/10 of a second. In that flash i waved a black card in front of the lens, until horizon level, reducing the amount of light for a better balance between sky and the foreground. PP eventually was done with a combination of Lightroom and iPhoto. I hope you like it.

I took this from mountain Igeldo, near San Sebastian, Basque country, into the direction of Getaria. Please click on the image for best viewing.

Forbidden point of view by wilcowesterduin

Last year, after the tragic death of a tourist, who got surprised by the rough Atlantic ocean waves, the city of Biarritz made this specific location a forbidden area. This time the tide was low and the ocean calm fortunately, so it was safe for me to make this long exposure from from this point. Nevertheless i still was very careful.
