Sunset Wave or دلشوره

شـب تاریک و بیم موج و گردابی چنین هایل

کـجا دانـند حال ما سبکـباران ساحـلها


The dark midnight, fearful waves, and the tempestuous whirlpool

How can he know of our state, while ports house his unladen ships.

- By Hafez

First it sounds crazy, but I tried panning with waves!

I took this shot just 12 minutes after this. But you can see a big difference in colors. Yes, it was the sunset time, and each second was critical for not loosing the time!


I got completely wet while shooting these series. There were huge waves (about 5 to 6 meters high) and the wind gust speed was 106km/h!


There are some shots from me taken by my friends when I tried to shoot this!

Thanks Mehdi and Mojtaba!
