Windy sunset on Crete

It was windy on Crete during my stay what actually made it easier to stand the heat. And also was good for landscape photography - I like that blur created by strong wind. It makes the scenes more dynamic and also can help in removing distracting elements from the picture. To get long enough exposure when shooting sunsets I needed to use ND400 neutral density filter. Otherwise I could get only very fast shutter speeds.
