The Black Sand Sunset

Giuseppe Sapori - The Rocks sunset


This is the Kamari beach in Santorini, it was very nice to see the powerful light of sunset tick from the mountain with the typical colors of the blue hour. Kamari is one of the places of Santorini where you can find restaurants, bars but also good beach… here the beach is made of very small black rocks renamed precisely Black Sand Beach. That day I was going to dinner and I was without my tripod, so I made this picture by a single shot, pointing to the rocks my camera focus with a f4 and a ISO higher of my usual average. In Photoshop I have tried to emphasize the yellow colors, “bringing back” the time behind the blue hour that there was at that time. If you want to see how to intensify the yellow or golden hour look this tutorial. I also sharpen more than i could, the rocks and the foreground.
