From a trip to a magical place called "Molen" (Mølen) by the southern coastline.

Molen is a long round-stone beach with an aura of mysticism about it. Along the beach are at least two
ancient grave mounds.

I've been to this beach a couple of times now, and both times the conditions were less
than optimal. This time, I had to struggle with strong gale winds and the waves breaking the rocky
shoreline. Foam, water and wind right in my face. Continuously cleaning the camera of
the salty water. With such strong winds, particles of water travel pretty far onto the beach. Some 50-60 meters
at least. Because of this, I didn't manage to get as close as I wanted to the water.

This and another different type of shot were the two keepers from this session.

Tricky exposure as well so this time I had to do some serious blending work using masks. The main exposure is 30 seconds and the darker exposure which I layered and masked is 17 seconds.

Believe me, 30 second exposure during these conditions are incredibly tricky. I held the tripod with both hands while the wind shook me. I was lucky, because most of the other long exposures I shot here suffered from blur.

Color temperature/white balance adjusted. Curves used for contrast enhancement (masking a few parts).

Not as tranquil as my last few shots have been, but personally I really like this.

Thanks for looking.

This is stunning! All of the texture in the landscape looks beautiful, and the colour on the horizon warms up what otherwise would be a cold (although still beautiful) colour scheme. Absolutely gorgeous. :+fav:
