Three ships on the roadstead

Three ships seen on the horizon waiting on the roadstead before they enter the port of Leça de Palmeira.

A story behind: In the beginning of spring this site is frequently shrouded in a dense and lasting marine fog. I was more than pleased to learn the air was crystal clear this evening. I wasted no time getting down to the beach, found my point of view over the small stone, and pulled out the 4-stop ND Grad from my bag. Positioning the filter at 0º angle over the sky, I managed a few long exposures while continually refining the filter’s influence over the scene.
