Default Summertime on Beautiful Fogo Island

Here are a couple more captures from my summer seascapes series, taken a few days ago very near our home on Fogo Island. (Newfoundland) I am so fortunate to have such stunning vistas right in our own backyard; I fear that I will soon wear out my cameras, the way I have been exercising my shutter finger these days!

As many of you know, I am unable to get up and about much, (spinal issues) so when I do have the odd good day I want to take full advantage of every moment, by exploring our island with my cameras in tow. I always end up paying a heavy price for these little excursions, (I've been back in bed for three full days after taking our visiting Aussie friends on this trail!) but it is indeed worth it, to see these pristine coastal scenes firsthand while I still can.

These two images are from the Turpin's Trail, near the tiny fishing community of Tilting. The panorama is made from three handheld captures, from one of my Sony A500's and the 18-55mm kit lens, (at ISO200, 1/800 sec, f/8) stitched together using Microsoft ICE. The old boat scene was taken using my vintage Minolta 50mm f/1.7 lens on the same camera. (handheld at ISO200, 1/4000sec, f/2.8)

Once I am again able to get mobile, my daughter Jackie and I plan to return to Turpin's Trail, this time with all of our gear, for more serious picture-taking. I am regretting not having taken along my Samyang 8mm fisheye the other day!

Indeed a wonderful panorama, well stitched and ... just beautiful. Looking forward to more pictures. Get well

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Just beautiful shots, love No.2 - my kind of thing. You get rested up and look after your back; so that you can post some more of your stunning scenery shots. Look forward to seeing the next series.
