View Full Version : From My Window - Fogo Island Fisheye

10-12-2011, 03:42 AM
I've been stuck in bed these past few days with my usual spinal issues, but managed to snap this picture from my bedroom window yesterday morning. Nothing too spectacular here; just thought it was interesting how the early morning sun was shining brightly, yet the dark sky was looking so ominous. Anyway, it gives you an idea of our view. (wouldn't trade it for the world!) Notice the old wharf and red fishing stage at the shore, which is in so many of my photographs. I captured this scene with my Sony A550 and trusty Samyang 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens.

The second photo is from a week or two ago, showing the old punt at the shore directly in front of our house. Again, nothing very special, but I'm attracted to the uncluttered simplicity of it. This was taken with one of my Sony A500's and Minolta 50mm f/1.7.

I am hoping to soon be able to get up and about again, as Fogo Island suddenly has a bumper crop of icebergs that are screaming to be photographed. It is VERY unusual to be seeing them so late in the year. (normally from May to early July)

Hope you feel better soon Glen!

I really dig the light in shot 1 as mentioned. Also love the sharpness on the rope in shot 2 - interesting comp.
