“Impact II”. Second shot of the “Impact” series. Western Sardinia; a storm hits the coast, creating walls of water that, pushed by the wind, disperse falling over the line of the rocks and bathing a green meadow studded with flowers.
What fascinated me about this scene is an aspect that I often find in the landscapes I photograph: the strength and majesty of very different natural elements, which apparently seem to collide as if to annihilate each other, but which are actually part of each other, in a perfect and delicate harmony.
From a technical point of view, to take the photos of this series, no particular precautions were necessary, except to use equipment with a high degree of tropicalization: the Pentax K-3 camera and the Pentax smc DA * 50-135mm f / 2.8 ED (IF) SDM lens are part of the “flagship” line of this brand’s offering and boast virtually unmatched levels of resistance to extreme weather conditions.
Moreover, to capture the scene it was sufficient to set a shutter speed fast enough to freeze the motion and splashes of the waves.
