Default Harbour in town of Tilting - Fogo Island

My health kindly cooperated enough to allow me to venture outside on Wednesday, and I took full advantage of the beautiful (though very cold!) day. I took lots of pictures, but came back home a couple of hours later too sore for the task of converting all of them from RAW, so maybe tomorrow I can spend some time getting things in order.

But here's one capture that I particularly like; a three shot panorama of the harbour in the historic town of Tilting, on the northeast corner of Fogo Island, about a half hour drive from our house. I love the texture of the newly formed ice in the foreground. Most of the homes you see are well over 100 years old. I am also thrilled that my new camera so perfectly captured the most amazing blues that I have ever seen! It's a shame that so much detail is lost in posting at this size, but I can just imagine how it will look framed on my wall at 36 inches!

This was shot using my Sony 18-55mm kit lens, and again, I am so impressed with the quality of it. Many people knock it, because it feel so light and "plasticy", wrongly assuming that this equals "poor build quality", but I am only interested in how the picture looks in the end. It is certainly sharp enough. (BTW, I have never heard of one of these lenses breaking, so they just may be tougher than some people think!)
