I love this image, Joao, and you've done a remarkable job in capturing it so perfectly...but so sad, that fishermen have lost their lives. #8435080

Great image, Joao...The colors, tones, movement of the sky, and boat reaching into to sky are all beautiful and powerful in combination. A wonderful tribute.
