The cloud and me


Selfportrait on the rocky beach of Granja, south of Porto, Portugal.

A story behind:  It was almost the sunset. I set a 30 seconds dalay and the camera shot a series of photos  with a one to three-seconds exposure.
Lack of polarizer didn´t allow me to remove the glare from the rocks while creating this dreamy long exposure photograph.


There was a thunderstorm on the horizon and the cloud went interestingly iluminated by the dying sun.

This is so beautiful! (I think I always say the same thing, now... all of your pictures are.)

Happy belated Christmas! All the best to you and your family in the new year.

Ui, dramático mas perigoso!

Acha possível fazer longas exposições diurnas provocando este arrastamento da água sem usar filtros?

Sim. Com um filtro 100 no dia com nuvens será possível esticar o tempo de aquisição para 15-20- 30 segundos. Abraço.
