A small pier and a ship

A small wooden pier and a ship photographed yesterday at the Foz beach, Porto, Portugal.



A story behind:  Shooting long exposures at the beach can create many challenges. First the waves hitting the tripod can move the camera. Second the sudden and unexpected wind blows may also ruin your photo. Beware of the droplets of water carried by the wind from the sea which quickly cover you camera and filters making the final image blurry. The long exposures of 180 seconds ( like the one above ) and plus another 180 seconds  ( when the camera reconstructs the image ) allow you only a few shots during the best light.
