A story behind: Sunday morning started with bright sun and nice mid-teens temperatures. "If the weather continues this way we are in for a nice spring !" I thought. In the afternoon I grabbed my gear and headed to the delta of Vouga river.
Near Murtosa village I parked the car and put on my rubber boots. I followed a strange path through the muddy banks of the river. The sunset and clear sky created a point-source hard light. It didn´t "wrap" around objects but instead sourced unpleasant crisp shadows and accentuated textures and details in the water. I shot a photo but I didn´t like it.
