    It takes wading in the ocean, water nearly chest high, to get to the Arch at Playa de Campiecho with high enough tide for the cave to be filled with water. Once you get there, however, the feeling and the view are simply amazing! Taken at sunset during the Workshop I led in Atlantic Spain in 2017 with Leica SL, Voigtlander 15mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.

    That is an amazing view Vieri. From the sounds of it equally amazing trek to get the shot - the result is stunning.

    This is beyond awesome Vieri! Beyond words to describe. I have been able to shoot from a few sea caves here in California, and it’s an amazing experience, but it would be nothing like what you have there!

    Is this high tide? Or do you really have to pay attention to the tide charts to make sure that you don’t get stuck in there?

    Thank you very much Ben! :)

    Thank you very much Alan! Yes, it's a bit of an adventure to get there but it's not dangerous and, if you have chest waders, it's a lot of fun to brave the sea to get in there! :D

    Thank you very much indeed Jim! : ) Yes, Campiecho is truly an amazing site for photography. To get there with water in the cave, you need to walk along a beach and then circumnavigate a couple of rocky outcrops wading your way in the sea, and when you finally arrive there you wade your way in the cave. I always go with ebbing tides, since with high tide the cave is full of water and 1. you couldn't shoot anyway, and 2. going when the tide comes in you'd be in serious troubles if you stayed long enough for the tide to go up enough to block your way back home. For me it's always safety first, both when I go alone and - especially - when I am leading a Workshop! :)
