Hello friends

Here is another shot from my Croatian trip.
I know it's quite similar with some i've already posted, but this one here was an experiment with a remote control :)

I waited for the sun to drop way beyond the horizon and when there was only a thin red line in the sky, i set my tripod, connected the remote control to my camera and fired away a Bulb exposure. The water was pretty calm anyway (as it usually is on the Croatian coast) but the 5 minute shutter speed made it ice-smooth and gave the frame a very interesting contrast between the water and the edgy rocks on the coast.

I quite liked the outcome; i hope you do, too :) Thanks for visiting.
