[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
La costa de los Esqueletos es uno de los puntos más temidos por cualquier marino. La corriente extremadamente fría de Benguela colisiona térmicamente con el aire cálido del desierto del Namib provocando una espesa niebla que dificulta enormemente la navegación. Esto hace que a lo largo de los años se hayan ido acumulando una gran cantidad de barcos embarrancados en las playas, algunos de ellos de gran tonelaje.

En la foto se muestra el naufragio de un pequeño pesquero. Es de los pocos restos accesibles. Muchos de ellos sólo se pueden avistar por aire.

Enric,
Very good tonal range here and the composition is very eye-pleasing.
I think it's a very interesting phenomenon how the fog builds because of the cold water and warm air colliding. I wonder if GPS has helped this problem. I do like this photo and I think your notes are superb.
Well done,
Scott

Foto muito bem acabada, com efeito dramático intenso. Bela definição, cenário e profundidade. Linda foto.

Great starkness the angle on the shot and the black and white conversion create the feeling make the shot effective.

A very good photographs indeed with a good point of view, good note and soft lighting. I congratulate you on a excellent choice of the subject. Your choice of framing also goes along with the subject. The composition and the colors are very good. Cheers.
