Egyptian paradise resort




This is a shot i did while i was on vacation in Hurghada,Egypt.This particular shot was done in an extremely fast conditions because i was resting near the pool when i saw the sunset ¬†which was incredible and only appeared that day its was like the 9th day i think ,so 9 days the sunset was crap literally sun with no clouds but on this day the Egyptian magic appeared . I ran like a kilometer to my room(huge resort ) which was on the 5th floor no elevator ūüėÄ grabbed my gear and ran like crazy to the pool in all that fast craziness i forgot that the gear was in my pretty cold room ¬†and just as i set up i get my eye to the viewfinder and i see just fog ¬†1-0 for the Egyptian high humidity , thank god for the lens cloth i carry with me saved the shot . Just as it came from nowhere the beautiful sunset was gone in ¬†2 minutes ¬†and is probably the best sunset i have seen in years ¬†hope to get back to Egypt to shoot the¬†pyramids with this kind of sunset in the background .
