Default More Fogo Island Fisheye Landscapes!

I suppose it is no secret that the Samyang 8mm f/3.5 fisheye is currently my favourite lens for my Fogo Island landscapes! Here are some more un-fishy fisheye captures, taken over the past two days near my house in Island Harbour. (none have been defished)

The icebergs have finally arrived! They are normally around in June and July, but they just started showing up in the past couple of days. I will post some next time.

(these were all taken with my Sony A550)

Excellent use of the ultra wide angle without the distortion effect of the FE. I like the compositions...especially #1.

All of these shots are beautiful, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the first one. The composition and the colors are gorgeous, very well done.
