This image was taken at 6:24 AM, that’s a few minutes after sunrise, and just after a rainy night. I didn’t took the time to put the tripod because some people were already invading the beach and I wanted a deserted view with a lot of negative space so I had to push the iso to 3200 to get enough speed to avoid blur by camera shake.

Puerto Lopez beach


Puerto Lopez is a small fishing village set in an arched bay on the Pacific coast of Ecuador. It is also the administrative center of the Machalilla national park.
