It’s been a while since I posted a coastal landscape photograph in black & white, so here is a new one. I shot it early July when I met up with Joel Tjintjelaar and a few other people near Domburg in Zeeland, The Netherlands. The weather that day was a complete disaster. It rained way too hard during most of the day, and when the rain finally went away, it was way too windy. The breakwater in this photograph lies on the beach of Domburg, a Dutch municipality in the province of Zeeland. The beach of Domburg is well-known for the many breakwaters that are there to keep the coast from eroding.

I shot this photograph during a long-awaited short period of relatively quiet weather … which inspired the title “Ending Silence”. I like how the contrast between the brewing sky and the silky water came out. I hope you like it as well!
This coastal landscape photograph was captured using a Nikon D3x with a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. A stack of two ND filters pushed the exposure reduction to 12 stops. The exposure time increased to a couple of minutes as a result. The photograph was processed using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2.
