Description

Chasing the Dragon was taken this year in Barrika near Bilbao in Vizcaya (Basque Country). It was shot at 14mm (Nikon 14-24mm), f/7.1 (on infinity) for 13 seconds. It was actually pitch black at this point but I wanted to keep some texture in the water, hence the wider aperture and relatively short long exposure. These wonderfully reptilian rocks have captivated me for a while - I think I had the title in mind before I shot it! I wanted to get a distinctive, more dramatic view, so waited for some serious storm clouds and took my chances between showers.... Tough night's shooting (plus it's a steep climb) but one those times you go home with a glow knowing you have captured the moment you were hoping for....
