Fishing Boat and Storm, Panarea, Aeolian Islands
One day in late October the sea and really wind picked up, as it can do during a typical Scirocco storm, with strong south easterly winds from Africa whipping up the sea by the port of Panarea.
I knew I had to try to capture something as the waves were crashing spectacularly over the jetty. As most of the smaller wooden fishing boats had been pulled out of the water because of the storm, this meant that they were left besides the port, providing superb subjects to photograph. This one was painted in pretty white and yellow trim colours, and the old rope coiled up provided a lovely extra addition. Once I had found my boat, I found a way to place it within the picturesque, almost theatrical, background of the stormy seas.
You have to be lucky to get a great shot in these fast moving situations, but in order to do so, you need to be patient. I think I took about 150 shots before I captured one with the waves crashing over and all of the elements that I wanted in place. I knew it the moment I pressed the shutter that I had the shot in the bag.
