Jump in the sea

“Jump in the sea”. On the west coast of Sardinia, among all the wonders that nature offers in this beautiful island, there is something truly special: the only one of its kind in Italy, is the Capo Nieddu waterfall. The thing that makes this waterfall unique is the vertical jump of about 40 meters that the small Riu Salighes makes directly on the small pebbly cove, right in front of the sea.
The view is fascinating, due to the majestic wall of basalt from which the brook flows, and the warm light of the sunset that saturates the colors makes the scenery even more spectacular.

To capture the magnificence of this sight, including the setting sun, I’ve decided to compose a panorama made of 4 vertical shots. As a result, the view is much wider if compared to a single horizontal shot, and it stretches from the cliff and its waterfall to the horizon. Moreover, in order to balance the brightness of the scene, I’ve used a 2 stop graduated ND filter to darken the sky a bit.
