A pink sunrise over the little port of Ponta de Arnel

The first light over the little fisherman´s port of Ponta de Arnel, São Miguel island.

A story behind:  I revisit this place almost every time I stay on São Miguel island, and many times I feel I can pull out an image that is different from what I already have. Ponta de Arnel is always a beautiful spot.
"Bad" weather is often very good for photographing. In fact I love “bad” weather. When clouds form and rain, these are the times when truly unique images are made. It takes a lot of time and patience, but in between storms there is often a clearing that will offer some truly magical cloud/light patterns.

E nesta, porque não maximizou a profundidade de campo com uma abertura pequena?

Em geral mais abertura melhor imagem.E por isso que as melhores objetivas tem a abertura 1.4.

De longe 5.6 deixou uma profundidade de campo bastante boa.
