In captivity

A story behind: My last Thursday trip was a disaster. But the day didn´t started so bad. In the morning when my lady housekeeper came, her first words were: " Parece que a primavera chegou !" ( "It seems the spring has arrived !"). I quickly peered through the window. It was warm, the sky was clear and the sun was bright. "Damn it !" I thought. Today I was planning my ride south to take photos of the boats and there is nothing worse for the landscape photography than clear skies and bright light. At mid-day I packed my stuff and still hoping for some clouds I left. When I arrived at the spot the light was still sharp, unpleasant and camera-unfriendly. You can see the result above.
