After Breaking the Ice

    Newer Older

    When I was in Iceland, I made a visit to the dock area. The edges of the dock were just beginning to freeze and occasional snow would blow in and pile up. All the ships were giant, metallic, and cold. I thought about what a hard life it would be to work on one of these ships. I don't really like being too cold and I'm not sure if the old "dress in layers" trick would work so well when out on one of these ships in the north Atlantic. Those guys that do that every day are tough!

    On this one, I kept the aperture pretty wide open to minimize ship movement on the rolling water. I don't normally tell the software to automatically align images (mentioned in the HDR tutorial), but this time I did.

      They must catch pretty big fish judging by that ramp, I guess they must be dragged up it? Whales? I hope not.

      If you find yourself on one of these, dressing in layers is still good advice, just make sure the outside one is water and wind proof, and that you will float.
