"Multiple intersecting paths
Multiple choices
Multiple lifes
All leading to the vast ocean of fate

Will the turbulence end in the horizon?
Or it just goes deeper?"

Location: Praia das Maçãs - Sintra - Portugal

Technique:

A study on shapes and contrasts. No foreground object this time, just a sense of flow and movement. I used a very long exposure (90 seconds) to capture the flow of the water back to the ocean. This was made possible with a 10 stop ND filter and a 3 stop ND grad filter for the sky. Also added a warming filter to the sky to enhance the color contrast between the top and bottom.

Camera and lens: Pentax K10d + Sigma 10-20mm
ISO: 100
Aperture: f9.5
Exposure: 90 seconds
Manfrotto tripod and remote shutter release
10 stop ND filter, 3 stop ND grad filter, warming filter
