A well-used fishing boat on the green, green coast of Ireland. I'm not sure why there were all the ropes, since it seemed fairly clear that this one wasn't likely to be washed out to sea.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/80 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 200, FocalLength: 25.80 mm, Model: DMC-FZ30

Mitch Spence level-classic July 17, 2008

Thank you, Eivor, Marisol, Allen, Peaches, Daniella, Judy, Tammy, Shelly, Kathleen, Dave, Denny, Dianna, Jo Ann, and Kitty, for your wonderful comments. I am so please that you like this. Allen, yes, I do like the D80 very much, and I think it will be fine for me for a long time, although with the way things change so fast we never know. I did make a mistake here though in checking the D80 for this particular photo. It was actually my older D100. #6190940
