A star and water lines

A story behind: I arrived at the right time. It was late afternoon - the time the surfers started coming out of the water. I had plenty of time to prepare my gear, put the tripod and wait. Sometimes it seems it takes hours to get the right light. So you wait and wait. And then it happens. Out of the blue the things start rushing up. The light gets gorgeous and the moment the sun passes the horizon line is very short.
The Mosteiros beach is very diverse: sand, rocks, curved beach line, many different light angles. Here one can learn discipline and patience.
