Transient by ReachingFlames Transient by ReachingFlames
Since I notice much interest in this photo I'd like to say sometings about it.

This photo is made on a beach on the Canary Island, La Gomera. I also slept there and I had a view on these rocks for several days but the image was in my head the first time I saw it.

I've been standing there for 2 hours and a half, my friends hungry and waiting for me while I was fascinated and unaware.. (sorry!)
Time feels for me the subject about this photo. And also timing, as I observed the sea for such a long time. It has it's types of behaving and I wanted the perfect moment, the wave at the background and especially the dripping water in the foreground. After a while, with all the sound and movement you get in another state of thinking, I must say.
Ofcourse, you can never predict the sea its movements completely. I almost had my camera been overwhelmed by the water 2 times (just remember to pull the strap of the camera!).

The overall image to me is a way of remembering the beauty of that beach, that island. And the infinite view I had on the sea, like in the night the infinite stars and in the day the infinite smiles from the people there.

Thank you for looking!

Dit is een perfecte foto :) Prachtige kleuren, sterke compositie en een zeer goede techniek! Mag ik vragen welke filter je gebruikt hebt?

erg bedankt ! ik heb gebruik gemaakt van een digitale filter in Nik softwares Color EFEX, geen idee welke filter dat precies was :)

Ah nee, ik bedoelde van filter voor je lens... Of heb je't zonder enige vertragende sluitertijdfilter genomen?

Inderdaad, ik gebruik daarvoor een infrarood afstandsbediening waardoor mijn sluitertijd zo lang kan zijn als ik wil :)
Het is nogal duur om echt zo'n ND filters te komen, voor het weinige gebruik dat ik ze zou geven... Ik heb eens een goedkopere aankoop gedaan maar die filters leken vals te zijn jammer genoeg! Heb jij er?
