I wanted to try and capture the majestic atmosphere these great cliffs next to Praia de Castelejo evoke. And black and white seemed the way to go supported by the scenic 16:9 crop. I deliberately took one of my underexposed pictures to keep the focus not to much on the rocks in the middleground but rather putting the emphasis on the shoreline and view which was impressive from that height - even though the wind was extremely strong and the hazy skies were dull. I have to say that I lately seem to enjoy my bad-weather-shots over those taken under light conditions that normally would be considered optimal. I hope this picture can convey the gloomy early morning atmosphere with the wind howling and the air tasting salty while ~emats
and I were shooting during the blue hour.
