My top spot for photography

A view at the mouth of the small river and the Sehor da Pedra chapel in Madalena, Portugal.

A story behind: This has always been one of my favorites spots for late afternoon photography. But as I hustled down there yesterday afternoon I had not expected to find such wonderful conditions. 
Is does not happen very frequently. In fact it happens only maybe a few days per year: a small lake made by the unnamed torrent being full from the rain we had a couple of last days ago combined with a high sea at the end of the day that pushes water from the ocean to the riverbed and the last, but most important and rare, no wind. 

I soon set up my D700 and 16-35. I added a polarizer and the 3-stop soft-step ND Reverse Grad to balance the exposure of the bright areas of the sky and water.
