Long exposure taken after sunset - camera and self perched on a concrete block and pipe half-buried in the sand (in the cold and dark), hoping neither I nor the camera fall into the water. ND4, GND8, at the 18mm end of the lens.

Processing: Converted from RAW (manipulated "tint" white balance slider to get the colour I wanted), square crop, resize, smart sharpen and save for web.
