Paragliders at Myrtos Beach against the Sunset

Paragliders at Myrtos Sunset No 1

Myrtos Beach* in Cephalonia has been voted one of the most spectacular beaches in the whole world not without reason. Depending on the weather, the winds and the cloud formation the water colors and the scenery change dramatically.

This time, it was after a fully sunny day at the beach with no particular photographic interest concerning a contrasting foreground and background, until the wait paid back when leaving the beach during sunset.

A couple of Paragliders that remained almost indifferent during the whole day suddenly became the subject of interest when looking from above the steep cliffs against the mild colors of the sunset in the clear sky complementing the scenery.

They were jumping from the cliff top, swirling slowly down until they touched the beach.

Shooting against the Sun, even during the sunset, mind an extra f stop to light correctly the foreground and your subject, but not much so as to maintain the extra depth of field required to capture the extended scenery.

* Myrtos Beach is in the region of Pylaros, in the north-west of Kefalonia island.
Cephalonia or Kefalonia, formerly also known as Kefallinia or Kephallenia, is the largest of the Islands in the Ionian Sea in Western Greece.
Myrtos has been described as "one of the most dramatic beaches in Greece", with its "mile-and-a-half long arc of dazzling white pebbles."
