Motorcycle Emptiness by pestilence Motorcycle Emptiness by pestilence
Look out of your windows, watch the skies

Woke up in the morning, had the urge to hope on my motorcycle and ride, what better? get the equipment together and pop for a short ride in the district of Attika.
The souther part of Attiki holds a lot of nice places the sun setting falls always within the vicinity of the camera and I knew I could probably experience some nice sunsets.
The sky was partially clouded and that meant that I could probably combine my short ride with a photographic opportunity, packed my stuff and headed towards Sounio and Saronida.
After slowly checking places where I could possibly enjoy a nice sunset without the cement madness of the rest of Athens I managed to find a little nice opening on the cape, there was a small parking lot but the motorcycle could easily fit. Pulled over and took my gear (thats a bit of tiresome since I always need to carry helmets, gloves and jackets with me) and I started descending the cliff.
I was a bit early so I had around 2 hours of waiting for the sun to start setting and catch up with the light I wanted to have, I put my equipment away and just waited starring at the calmness of the surroundings only the sea and the breeze, ipod playing my favorite tunes and thoughts overwhelming my mind.
Although I initially used a GND, I decided to go for a manual blend of 2 exposures (EXIF for the exposure on the dark rocks).
First exposure for the foreground was at 1.3 sec at f/16 and the second exposure for the sky was at 0.5sec at f/16
