Windy Weather in Zeebrugge - Dunes
From time to time it gets very windy in Zeebrugge, just like you see here. The wind nicely shapes the dunes and the sand. In the background you see cranes of the port. They use them to unload big container ships. Many of them come from China. 8000 containers is standard.
TECH-INFO: I wanted to capture some motion of the dunes and the sand which gets blown away. After some experimentation a shutter speed of 1/30s worked out fine. An aperture of f/11.0 was nice compromise between a larger DOF and having good sharpness of the lens. But perhaps f/16.0 and ISO200 would have been even better. The focal length of 200mm compresses port and the dunes together.
I processed the image in DxO Optics Pro but I don't remember what I did exactly. Probably tweaking the vibrance, maybe the hue and for sure the curves.
