Delphinus is a fishing boat measuring 28 × 8 metres and is based at Portimao, Portugal. It was probably named after the common dolphin Delphinus Capensis or possibly after the star conselation.
This photograph was taken from the harbour jetty Praia Da Rocha as the sun was setting. The boat is returning to Portimao which is just a couple of miles along the Arade River from the harbour.

Above is how the photograph would look as a Framed Print
