Palaio Faliro / Greece Hard time, I had to run after each wave crashing on the rocks, and additionally I had to hold a filter cleaner on my hand since the filter would suffer from the water being splashed all over. I was a bit disappointed by the sky since it was mostly overcast. Another thing I regret on this one, is not having a wide angle! (but this is all history now...)

_____Random Info Within everyone lies an emptiness that has to be filled with a passion - landscape photography is my passion (alongside my band of course).
This was shot on the 5th day of my recent Portugal Trip with SvenMueller after we had a very disappointing sunrise in the dunes eastward of these rock formations located near the town of Almograve on the Atlantic Coast. Luckily we actually waited for almost overcast weather conditions to shoot some of the very ominous looking forms and I am more than just content with the outcome. Also I guess I will add a vertical format of this motif in due time as well. SvenMueller has already uploaded his vertical format which you can take a look at here: emats.deviantart.com/art/A-Mom….
I used my trusty B+W to get the long exposure and actually switched the white balance to cold light which led to the slight purple touch but still an overall cold light blue toning so I didn't have to change much colorwise. And since I loved the colors so much I figured I might as well use it as a Wallpaper and subsequently ended up going the extra mile to set up a complete Wallpaper Pack for you guys. Hope you enjoy; also let me know what you think.
_____Wallpaper Info Of course there are no frame and no watermark in the wallpaper version of this picture.

You can just make out Squamish in the distance, and, just above it - Stawamus Chief - a giant gray granite rock formation, popular with BC hikers and climbers. The morning fog was hiding from the sun in the Squamish Valley.
The shot is taken at about 8:45 am with Nikon D90 and 18-105VR with a polarizing filter.
