Photographer's Note

The Portuguese coast is very inspiring because, despite the large number of tourists, it still has plenty of astonishing secret spots, although most of them are fairly inaccessible.

I took several trips to the same place to get the perfect light conditions and a favourable low tide. I prefer to shoot in the ‘magical hour’ which enables me to get rich colours and use long shutter speeds to blur the water and/or the sky.

Apart from basic and unavoidable editing in Photoshop (slight contrast, saturation and unsharp mask), the shot is unmanipulated as much of the work is done on location using a ND grad filter to balance the light and a polariser to enhance colour and contrast.

I hope you enjoy!

PS: I appologise for the 500px larger side and watermark in the frame, but some unauthorized use has happened before in other websites (including mine)
