A day out on Magaruque Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago near Vilanculos in Mozambique. This sailboat was moored there making a beautiful picture with the clear seas, blue skies and clouds. from 500px Magaruque Sailing Boat
A little crab coming out of his hole on the beach. As you walk along a secluded beach at low tide little mounds of sand next to a hole seem to be all over the place. Many of these are made by little crabs which have been hiding in their burrows during the higher water. Once the surface sand is dry they pop out and go foarging, always with an eye out for danger. Move too close and they will scurry back into their holes.
The Little Crab was captured on the beach at Vilanculos, Mozambique.
Travelling light (more or less), as we were leaving for an island trip, I had the Canon EOS 60D with the EF 70-300 zoom. These were shot by simply setting the lens at closest focus and moving until the crab was in focus. Hence the short depth of field. All at f/8 1/500 ISO100. These were edited online in Google Photos.
It’s mid day, blue sky beach. A great time to be on holiday. The dhows are parked in the shallows, waiting for the cooler afternoon and higher tide to take their load of fishermen or tourists.
Actually it was very hot, and a good time to be in the shade nursing a cold beer. Mid day is not a good time to be taking photos anyway, blue sky, beach or not. But the scene needed to be capture and I am quite pleased with the result.
