Taken recently in Belfast Lough while out on the good ship Anchors Aweigh with my father and good friend. This was taken using a fisheye lens from as far forward on the boat as is possible to go, without getting wet!

Taking this was a bit of a challange as standing upright at the very front of the boat with your back to the sea is very unnatural for me! Especially with both hands on the camera! Between the motion of the boat and the waves, I didnt want to spend too long up there without holding on to anything!

Taken with my Nikon DSLR 3100 and edited in Photoshop CS5.

Exposure: 1/500sec
f-stop: f/11
ISO: 320
Lens: Sigma 10mm Fisheye Lens.
