Fishing in Cadiz

A glorious day in Cadiz with a deep blue sky and a few wispy clouds – perfect conditions for the fisheye – the fisheye loves blue skys and hates cloudy grey.  Coupled with the strong architectural lines and intricate details of the many balconies in Cadiz some interesting compositions can be found.

Most images are taken at f/11 with the focus set manually to just off infinity

I have never been anywhere where so many of the buildings have balconies – in Cadiz many of the balconies are glazed behind the wrought iron, quite unusual.

A number of walking routes around the old town are marked with a coloured line – here I liked the way the blue line mirrors the blue of the strip of sky.

The fisheye is always good for the abstract and I have found surprisingly not as subject to lens flare as I had expected even when pointed towards the sun.
