Port Mélite is a natural harbor on the coast of the small Island of Groix in Brittany. When I was there on vacation I headed out there every evening for sundown, and this is one of the most interesting shots I managed to get.
One of the wonders of doing long exposure shots of water is you don’t really know before hand what the final picture will look like. That’s because you’re never quite sure what amount and texture of light will be hitting the water during the exposure. It’s only when I was processing Mercury Sea ( a shot of the cove of Port Mélite in Groix) that I noticed that metallic glint on the water that really makes the shot (in my opinion).
