    Default My Town of Island Harbour - Fogo Island

    I took this one last night, just as the sun was about to dip below the horizon. In the distance you can see my seaside village of Island Harbour. (population 180)
    The two humps are part of the island that sits in a small protected bay directly in front of our house, as seen in many of my photographs.
    I used my Sony DSLR with 18-55mm lens (RAW) handheld, at 200 ISO, f/8, at 1/30th sec., and lightened it up a bit with PSP9.

    The second shot (taken right in front of my house) was just a spur of the moment experiment, but I like the way it turned out. I think my website will soon need a section dedicated to weathered fence posts! This one was also taken with my Sony DSLR, but I used my old Minolta 50mm f/1.7 lens, which gives me consistently good results.

    The last one is part of my attempt at learning to photograph flowers. It was also shot using the Minolta 50mm f/1.7 lens.

    Lovely spot you live in. And looks to me like you've made a good start with the wildflowers.

    Nice set, for sure. Agree with MA on the fence shot. The first image is stunning, well done.
