Another shot from Castelejo Beach earlier this year. This shot was taken after the moon had risen behind the cliffs and illuminated the ocean and beach. After shooting the sunset ~emats
and I stayed a little longer on the beach because I wanted to shoot the nightsky but due to the fullmoon light and the extremely high humidity there wasn't much to see aside those two, brightest stars which had accompanied us all the way through Portugal (actually those are the planets Venus and Jupiter, but heh
), as some of the only stars we'd see at night after descending from Mt. Torre.
After I took some shots of the cliffs and the moons reflection in a puddle the flood left over and ~emats
decided to call it a day. I figured I may as well shot the beach's iconic stone formation with our two nighttime companions. The conditions for the shoot were in fact not very good, since there weren't only the light problems already mentioned but also severe winds howling over the beach. I must say that seeing the cloud's shadows run over the cliffs and the beach ever southwards, was very impressive and intense but my lens was smudged every few seconds so I had trouble cleaning it every interval. After I was done shooting I really feared that my camera might have taken some damage because it was really wet as if it had rained for half and hour, but since the K5 is weather sealed nothing happened; my battery grip wasn't as fortunate though from time to time the battery simply isn't recognized by the camera, a little buggy but not the end of the world, surely worth the shots. Hope you enjoy.
