The Arch

View of a natural rock arch at the Costa Vicentina in southern Portugal. In Spring, the blooming wildflowers offer very nice foregrounds. The plant on this image is called Hottentot-fig (Carpobrotus edulis), which is native to South Africa and is an invasive species at the coast of Portugal.

Technical Details

Composite: No
I used two exposures for this image, one taken at f/8 with 30 sec exposure time (using an ND filter) for the water, sky and rocks in the background , and a second at f/8 with 1/70 sec for the foreground. This also helped to get everything in focus.
