Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 10-20 lens at 11mm, F11, shutter speed 6 seconds, ISO100, ND110 filter, processed in Photoshop

Last April we spent a week near the beautiful city of Sorrento in southern Italy. I have been trying to get a shot like this using my 10 stop ND110 filter for some time but I do not live near a rocky coastline. We had just back to our hotel after a day on an excursion when we decided to visit a little cove called Bagni della Regina Giovanna 15 minutes walk away, the sun was out but the sky in the distance was wonderfully brooding.

I uploaded a similar shot to this a while back, this shot is a slightly different view and I have removed the warm colour cast thanks to Jason’s Photoshop tip on how to do this, cheers mate!

The cove is located north of here
