Cordoama by AndyMumford Cordoama by AndyMumford
The Photo

Taken on Praia da Cordoama on the south western coast of Portugal in November.
The shot is nothing special, I'd used the best light of the day shooting another composition, but I loved the black rocks here and wanted to see if I could build a composition around them.
The vast majority of coastal waterscapes feature water flowing around rocks in the foreground, but here I wanted to concentrate more on the rock forms and the receding cliffs.

As soon as it stops raining in Portugal (it's been solid for a month now in Portugal, I think I'm about to grow some gills) I'll be back down here trying to shoot the beach better.

Brilliant shot Andy, love the focus on those rocks and the whispy clouds in motion. A real cracker of a shot!
