Sunset Landscape Photo of the Portugal Coast

I made this image just down the road from our house on the Silver Coast Portugal. I find this area inspiring and I wanted to get some inexpensive neutral density filters so I could experiment a bit with slowing down the shutter speed and making crashing waves look silky smooth. This is only an experiment, and I have a long way to go before I master the technique, but I am enjoying taking the tripod down to the water and seeing what I can create.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
