This photo was taken from the beach of Mosteiros, a small village in the Saò Miguel island (Azores), a small Eden in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. After several days of bad weather, waiting for a colorful sunset sky, I was rewarded with some amazing colors. I wanted to capture the beautiful sky and at the same time show the incredible rocks formations, remains of a coastal caldera (Saò Miguel is a vulcanic island). On the horizon line are visible the sea stacks called "Islets of the Monasteries". This photo is the result of two blended exposures: one for the sky and one for the foreground. The one for the sky is a 2 secs long exposure, the one for the foreground is a 8 secs long exposure.
