   This shot was taken at one of Portugals most famous beaches: Praia da Adraga near Sintra. These characteristic stone formations were certainly a challenge to compose but luckily I had the right winds and clouds for creating a dynamic sky and enough surge for the misty-touched midground which contrasts the dark tonalities of the sand very well. I do prefer such ominous pictures over the classic sundown anytime, so I am very content with the outcome.

 And major thanks to JanPusdrowski for lending me his lens hood for the trip. Without it most of my seascapes would've suffered under the weather circumstances even more, with rain drops coming from all sides most of the time.

"The Living Infinite" drags the viewer right into the picture. The soft blur due to the long exposure emits pure calmness. Those rough rocks make for an interesting contrast and give the picture more depth, they attract and build some tension, without them the calmness couldn't be conveyed. Blue tones dominate the picture and generate a cold feeling.
The viewer stands on the cost after a long, harsh and cold day, breathing the fresh air. Instant relaxation overcomes the mind, with a warm tea waiting back home.
This piece of art is carefully composed and presented to the audience, well done!

Superb work, great balance in composition. The texture of the underwater sand is just gorgeous.
Thanks! I got really lucky with the pattern in the sand! :D

Like the smooth transition from the sand over the thin water layer to the mist ( least it looks like mist...).
The texture of the sand in the foreground is fantastic.
Great shot!
Thanks. Glad you like it. Had a good surge to facilitate this. :D
