I stepped into mud.

What kind of sacrifice can a photographer take in pursuit of the best angle and the most favorable light? I stepped yesterday into the mud and my feet weren´t too happy about it. But the photo I have taken was definitely worth it.

April 2009. Low tide. The sea mud and traditional fishermen´s boats close to Murtosa village, Portugal.
