Sunset at Cory Brothers' quay

  • Prize
    Silver in Nature/Sunsets
  • Photographer
    Jose Luis Mendez Fernandez

Sunset at Cory Brothers' quay is a series of three images taken during the golden hour at
the ancient historical Cory Brothers' quay in Valleseco municipality built in 1912
consisting of two old bridges used to transport coal. It was originally exploited by the
British firm Cory Brothers and Company Ltd. for the supply of coal in the port of Tenerife.
I used a 10 ND filter to capture the images and a long exposure of about 3-5 minutes in
order to take difuse clouds and water motion. The Raw files were developed in Adobe LIghtroom 5.0. My goal was to express serenity as if time
would stand still.
