Cave Paradise

by Maurizio Pignotti

It took 6 shots to compose this image. An unusual view of a sea cave at night from within. Shooting very complex in its execution, and 'needed the complete immersion of my body to the upper body and the tripod in salt water. A targeted adjustment of artificial light while I took with Remote Control + self-timer to 10 seconds. Light soft for not overdoing the texture of the cave. Surreal environment also in the lived reality, an indescribable feeling that I had never tried.
Equipment: Nikon D3s Nikkor 14/24mm

I am a photographer who loves the night, in the lonely mountains, pristine nature. I love the sky the stars, the universe around us, I love photography.
