December in Aguda

The first day of December, stormy sunset over the Aguda beach, Portugal.


A story behind: Early evening storm approaching from the mainland Portugal with beautiful, full of contrast clouds gathering over the small lighthouse and pier of the Aguda beach. I used the 3-stop soft-step ND Grad to balance the exposure of the bright areas of the sky with the pastel coloured sea in the shaded foreground.

It is amazing the way you froze the moment, I almost feel it! That's what I love about photography.
