Room with a View

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 24 August 2007 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Whilst in Sardinia I stumbled across this caravan with a rather special view of the sea. The owner had managed to get his caravan onto the edge of a 10 meter high cliff overlooking the sea. You can see how windy it was from the way the caravan awning is bellowing up but he looked like he was really enjoying himself in a relaxed "all the time in the world" kind of way!

One of the 'advantages' of a compact camera compared to a Dslr is the huge depth of field. I wanted to get everything in focus in the shot as the foreground, in particular, interested me as much as the caravan. This is the result with the fuji F31 on its aperture priority setting at f8.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

Yes, you got lots of nice detail there. Great view although I'd be nervous if it was my caravan!

@Daroru: Thanks Daroru - yes i'm not sure how easy I'd have slept at night in that Caravan either :-)

Brian from United States

Great detail and depth. I like the incongruity of the caravan on the cliff edge. Great shot.

Markus from Reading, United Kingdom

Cool shot! Was the caravan fixed to something? I guess with high winds it's a bit dangerous that close to a cliff edge...

@Markus: Thanks Markus - It was a great spot but it really looked precarious in a high wind!
