Scored this shot handheld; braced against a signpost!

I think my shutter speed on this was somewhere around 4 seconds.. I made 5 or 6 attempts at this shot and gave up due to not having a tripod on me. Upon checking the card at home, I discovered this gem. It was underexposed enough to make difficult to review in camera, thus I had missed it.

Post process included raw mode exposure adjustment, a touch of sharpening, and vibrance and clarity boost.

The north spit of Humboldt Bay has a rich industrial history dating back to the 1850s. Today a massive cleanup is under way targeting primarily the old pulp mill depicted in the center of the photo.

Italian Youth Fishing

This, another shot from my 2012 adventure to the coast of southern Italy. Don’t miss the video here.

I was a bit slow to take this photo, missing an opportunity to better compose the boat in the background by mere seconds. Still a worthy photo nonetheless.

For good measure, here is one other photo from the Pugliese coastline; of a different boat.
