Last saturday I went for a walk on the Arrabida Range and ended up on the margins of River Sado that separates the city of Setubal and Troia Peninsula.
The tide was down but growing, still it was allowing the walk at its margins giving access to some small beaches that aren't easily accessible by land as there's a lot of trees and bushes of the Arrabida range covering the entrance by land.
After some rock climbing and a quick walk thru the beach we ended up on a small creak with big rocks and a small extension of sand.
Just the time of taking some photos and get back as the tide was moving fast and I wasn't on the mood of making my way with the sneakers on water :-)
There is so much going on in the foreground I hardly looked any further. In fact you could make a letterbox format image for the intimate landscape inspiration section.
I like the reddish tones in the foreground also.
It sounds like you have to be very experienced with knowing the tides. Our coast is the same and it is easy to get cut off.
Your low POV works well. There are some lovely colours in the rocks; very pink.
Very, very nice! The sky sure adds so nice drama to the scene. Looking at the scene I seem to be fascinated with the details in the foreground to the detriment of the background. It sure looks like a rough coast line and getting out to some coves before the tide comes in makes for rushed shoot but you came back with a winner.
