Another shot taken in Mozambique.
It was getting quite dark, hence the wide aperture - not ideal, but rather that than bumping up the ISO - I hate noise!! :-)
If you're interested in reading more about the country, more info on Mozambique in my previous post.
Hope you like!

Nice slow shutter speed image ;)
I like the sharpness of the ground and the blurness of the sky

Unusual and very pleasant photo.
Excellent pov and choice of exposure.

The aperture hasn't apparently caused any problems with your depth of focus, which is sharp from front to back. If it worried you, you could of course have used a smaller aperture; the tripod has held steady for 30 seconds, and could probably manage another 30 with no problem!
But this is a delightful, simple, minimalist seascape, that benefits from the muted, subdued and subtle evening light. I'm so glad you weren't tempted to beef up the saturation in Photoshop! The long shutter speed has blurred the sea to silk, and creates a magical effect. Very well done.
P.S. Welcome back!
