This particular costal landscape photo was taken further South than the previous ones of this series. It's incridible how the rock formations changes so dramaticaly Km after Km when you travel along the coast. Also incredible is the green vegetation on the rocks, which will last only a month and then disapear untill next year.
As always, 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 polarizer to enhance colour and contrast.
I hope you enjoy!
PS: I apologise for the 500px larger side and watermark in the frame, but some unauthorized use has happened before in other websites (including mine). I know this spoils teh pleasure of seeing larger images and I truly apologise for that. Thanks for undersatanding.

Another beautiful shot crawling with great colors. Excellent composition with the use of the rocks as leading lines. That must be an extremely low tide. I was wondering what kind of ND filter you used?
