"After the apocalypse, a velvet world will still be there, eternal."

A shot made in the fabulous Costa Vicentina in Portugal. This image shows a strong emphasis in the rock formations. It's amazing to watch every geological detail in these beaches, where the land enters the sea very abruptly, with very distinct rock formations exposed.

A very long exposure - 180 seconds - made after sunset, with a 2 stop soft ND grad filter and a 4 stop full ND filter. Even though it's usually considered a flaw, I like the color cast of the 4 stop filter in long exposures, especially on these overcast days.

Processed through Adobe Camera Raw with basic adjustments, and then slight color balance fine tuning in photoshop and final sharpening.
