Sunrise over Biarritz, Pyrenees-Atlantiques, Basque Country, France. The picture was taken during my trip to South France in August 2014. Biarritz is a major surfing destination, and beaches host surf schools and an annual international competition. The beach seen on the photography is one of the most popular surfing locations in the South France. To achieve silkiness of the sea and sky I used long exposure settings.

Photographer: Dariusz Stec (Northampton, UK) Registered
A landscape and lifestyle photographer based in Northampton, Dariusz Stec loves to click, sail and travel, who would like to show how and what he sees through the lens of his camera. Smena-8m was the first camera in his possession in 1985, created around 3000 photos mostly during soaring, and was totally preoccupied with the darkroom photo processing. The next camera was zenit-ttl. Even when he was absorbed by sailing, photography has played important role in his life. After some time he had decided to master his photography, together with his son (Adam Stec), who found himself within portrait fashion photography. They have decided to develop the knowledge of the art of photography.
