Photographer's Note

The Place
This is the rocky shoreline of the fishing village of Cocholgüe during a clear sky sunset. This place is few km from my parents place, Dichato. The place is ideal for slow-shutter photos because there are plenty of interesting rock formation, rocks cover in algae, and strong waves.
You can always check the location of my photos by clicking on the map link.

During December, the sunset in this part of Chile is around 9PM, exactly the time for dinner at my parent’s place. Thus, it was very hard for me to leave home and wait for the right light for sunset photos.
But I really wanted to shoot at this place, so I told my family I was going to be late for dinner. My wife and daughter wanted to come along, but they could not reach the place where I took this photo since one has to jump from rock to rock to get a good location near the waves. So they waited and waited at the shore.

The locals were wondering who the crazy guy who sets a camera on a tripod in the middle of wet rocks and takes shot after shot of the same rock for 25 minutes!
I took many photos but since the sky was clear there was not a dramatic sky before or after the sunset. I am not 100% happy with the result but I wanted to share this with you anyway. I will definitively go to this place again during my next trip to Chile.

Used Cokin Grad 8ND filter, and very windy weather
