Went fishing (again)...

Uploaded: October 20, 2009


Last sunday I returned to Aveiro lagoon in the north of Portugal, to the same place where I captured two years ago my 1st award in BetterPhoto ("Went fishing..."). This time the capture was in a late afternoon of a sunny fall day, opposite conditions from the previous one in a morning of a rainy spring day.

Exif: F Number: 9.1, ExposureTime: 1/8 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, FocalLength: 17.00 mm, Model: EOS 30D
