Corse, Fautea Nature Protection Area


1/25 s F/13 ISO 400 EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS at 17mm, handheld, 17:45

Tonight I've printed this image for my mother. Having spent her education years at the coast and now living far far inland she misses the sea with its countless moods.
This image was taken as we were driving back from a hike in the central part of the island, Bavela. We arrived at Fautea just in time for a short brake between showers. The wind was quite strong. As I was so lazy to leave the tripod in the car, the settings used were a compromise between DOF, noise and handholdability aided by IS. Had I taken the tripod I'd be free to experiment with longer exposure times...
Happy birthday Mom.
