Fishing is not a relaxing hobby

A story behind:  There is no doubt that fishing is one of the most popular outdoor hobbies. When you are holding the end of a fishing rod its like it takes all your problems away for a while. Many people dont know that fishing has even been used for therapy even in children with some sociological problems. 
But today at the Douro river pier the fishing seemed more like high-adrenaline sport. The pier lighthouse is 15 meters high which means that the foam war spraying close to 25 meters into the air, propelled upward by the raging winter ocean.

@Kameleon: Szaleńcem bylem juz ja robiąc te zdjęcie: zalewany obiektyw, co chwila ucieczka do tylu. Ale rybacy się tym zbytnie nie przejmowali.

Czyli spotkali się prawdziwi pasjonaci - po dwóch stronach obiektywu. Naprawdę zazdroszczę tego ujęcia!

É verdade que quanto maior for a vel. de obturação (no modo TV) e o ISO, consequentemente a abertura será menor?
