Hi Assi - spectacular shot against a fantastic sky (in color, shapes, and texture), superb action given by the guy and his boat. Hope you're fine and fully recovered. Rgds, Daniel
Albrecht (11281) 2007-05-21 5:22
a very impressive sky and nice title. not quit sharp but I like the atmosphere.
edytungkal (4551) 2007-05-21 5:25
Very dramatic picture with the clouds and man on the boat. Well composed picture, I like it.
InasiaJones (31562) 2007-05-21 5:27
This is amazing. What a stunning view over this spectacular thunderstorm. To put this man in his boat in front of it creates a whole story. Impressive point of view and excellent composition.
wolf38 (31284) 2007-05-21 5:30
Hello Assi. This photo is wonderful and very much impressing. A man in his boat and on the horizon a grandioses nature play. Really well seen and photographically realizes. Great. Best regards, Wolfgang.
Jackos (3542) 2007-05-21 5:30
Impressive shot. The sky looks dangerously but this man (fisherman?) isn't afraid of it. I like it.
vincz (19113) 2007-05-21 5:40
Wonderful sky! So dramatic. You did an excellent colour and clouds texture job here. A truely fantastic picture. Congratulations.
soupie01 (789) 2007-05-21 5:40
Amazing sky, now that looks scary. Great pov of view from behind the boat, that guy had better start paddling soon!

grammos (23) 2007-05-21 6:29
This is really great shot.
how can you shoot like this? Isn't it dangerous?
You're a brave man..
nicoz (1979) 2007-05-21 6:31
A remarkable instant! The sky is awesome. I am just not sure oabout the choice of DOF. If you wanted the man out of focus i think that I would have prefered a larger apperture, because here it looks like it's a bit blured (the clouds show it's not in fact).
The result is still very nice!
hdl (7035) 2007-05-21 7:40
Great shot. Excellent pov. Best one I've seen today up till now.
derek3755 (2341) 2007-05-21 8:00
what a brilliant capture, such a threatening sky and this man all alone in his boat, wonder what he's thinking!!
daddo (26350) 2007-05-21 8:56
Shalom Assi. Incredible mood in this shot- a man against the elements, tempting fate. Alone, alone, all alone, alone in a wide, wide sea...Wonderfully surrealistic colours and shapes of the clouds. A very creative and meaningful shot. Well done. Regards. Klaudio.
Paolo (41222) 2007-05-21 9:45
Hi Assi, excellent pciture, with wonderful saturation on the tones and a great view of the poor man against the bad weather!
excellent POV and good quality.
blue-velvet30 (6524) 2007-05-21 12:26

gildasjan (42906) 2007-05-22 4:43
A very beautiful setting in scene. This sky is marvellous.
maltese (22873) 2007-05-22 6:44
Et sous ce terrible ciel, tu as pu garder de superbes couleurs!!
très belle photo, j'aime beaucoup
pburraco (861) 2007-05-22 16:43
I'm so jelous! You get an GREAT photo here, with strong character and feeling.
TheG1 (1509) 2007-05-23 9:44
This is a great capture. Was this a storm or just some clouds at the horizon?
Anyway, the composition is amazing!
Photo65Net (43120) 2007-05-27 4:12
This one is like a painting, with impressive exposure control and beautiful colors.
Very nice, I'm speechless,
cyrrhus (2878) 2007-05-27 4:48
You were lucky to have that kind of dramatic sky in Callao and you took the best of it.
A really great composition !
PS : I just think it would benefit from some sharpening after resampling, especially for the fisherman.
xavshot (69835) 2007-05-27 9:19
c'est une photo très belle. Les couleurs sont superbes et le ciel très impressionnant. Bravo pour ce post
dumaresq_ca (1892) 2007-05-28 8:27
quelle image incroyable! On pourrait croire à un scénario catastrophe en devenir.
La prise de vue est très efficace: composition bien structurée, contrastes et couleurs bien dosés, belle lumière aussi. J'aurais bien aimé que le personnage central soit plus net pour aider à l'établissement des plans.
Tout de même du très bon travail!
vonp (2235) 2007-05-29 8:16
Difficult is making picture so beautiful: what a wonderful compo! You show the nature and the man in an amazing way.
Man and nature: in this case it's easy to say who win....
See you soon...
lucinka (9976) 2007-06-06 2:21
Hello Assi, what a powerful shot with very strong atmosphere. You've been really lucky to be there at that moment with camera in your hands and I hope you have not been on the boat yourself. Well done. Lucie
waseemkhan (1099) 2007-06-08 4:25
Hi Assi ,
a very impressive sky and nice title. not quit sharp but I like the atmosphere.
Clairedelune (4923) 2007-06-08 20:57
My goodness! And you came back from there????
I'm quite sure you played with the curves and all in a good PP software, but still! That wall of rain just in front of the small, tenny-weeny, lilliputian boat there: frightening! The guy's not so sharp? Truly, it doesn't bother me at all! The sea doesn't seem to be too agitated.
Impressive, to say the least!
Bruno40 (6658) 2007-06-15 7:02
Fantastic photo, very good use of zoom to give the impression of closeness. Good framing.
brevbrev14 (140) 2007-06-21 6:03
Hi Assi, this image is impressive!!
it seems a scene of a film!
the sky is superb and also the moment!
ifanik (21679) 2007-07-24 1:18
This photograph you make wonder ''what became afterwards?''
Too much good
kiks (11785) 2007-07-26 4:42
amazing image. The clouds look indeed terrifying. Good light management.
zeca (19762) 2007-08-27 13:25
Wow! I love to shot this kind of weather and here you did a wonderful work capturing this! The storm opening its wings over the fisherman is something great! Exellent work, Assi! Congratulations!
jramos (507) 2007-09-03 20:40
Wow, this is a very dramatic photo full of energy and bold colors. This is one of those instances where a picture is worth a thousand words. Great composition.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2007-09-21 8:24
Wonderfull really. Impressive !
The cloudy dark sky is incredibble.
A master picture
ndb1958 (9289) 2007-09-22 15:18
Oh, what a sky. These clouds look like the gate to hell. Indeed an amazing scene. Looks quite unreal. Nino

this is a amazing frame. cong.
ryno (6865) 2007-10-27 12:54
Beautiful atmospheric shot, Assi. The sky is almost overwhelming, and there's a real sense of danger and drama here. Well done!
degani (2975) 2007-10-27 13:05
beautiful, even if a lot of people said the same I wanted to add my compliments
gramma (3519) 2007-10-28 3:22
Spectacular photography. I don't understand how you have been able to obtain such an image. Incredible !
LamCam (3603) 2007-10-28 8:40
What a drama - the stuff of nightmares! I hope he woke up and found he was only asleep in the bath!
Terrific capture , and with a very serious aspect as it gives a taste of the real terror of these sudden storms.
Best wishes Maggie
paura (47186) 2007-10-31 13:15
Beautiful composition, with very nice lighting and colors adjustments. An excellent shot indeed.
steliosk (4802) 2007-10-31 17:28
I have no words to say
your composition is way out of reach
one of my favorite photos
darrasin (2860) 2007-11-01 23:42
Hello Assi! As you already know, this one is masterpiece. Perfect subject, perfect dramatic conditions. Excellent framing and crop to really heighten the drama.
Dyerco (10185) 2007-11-12 7:55
This is a wonderful composition. Very simple but what a story it tells. Where were you when you took this?
donluicu (24724) 2007-11-12 8:08
thisn is a very impressive shot..
we are wondering where the hell is this guy going??!!!
KevRyan (22956) 2007-12-27 3:02
Wah! Assi - the first time I've seen this one - what an amazing iconic image - beautifully rendered and nicely framed by yourself. I think I might have been tempted to give a little less water at the bottom just to make him a little less secure but really this is just stunning and into my favourites too for the year! His stance against the sky is just perfect!
All the best for 2008 Kev
pboehringer (770) 2008-01-07 8:04
this is one of those moments at TE that you just sit there and stare at the shot and wonder why such scene never unfolds in front of your own camera. A very poerwful moment that you captured here and the tight framing works extremely well.
bigboroboy (1098) 2008-01-28 20:01
Wonderful. The framing is simply superb and the detail in that "end of the world" sky is so textured. Just wonderful. One of the strongest images in your gallery.
ruisc_pt (10892) 2008-03-19 10:55
Fabulous shot Assi
A wonderfull photo full of strength with a great message.
Nordavind (539) 2008-03-22 16:14

Cara (2059) 2008-03-22 16:24
Just Wow, really great shot this one.
Pat69 (112) 2008-03-22 16:34
Great! Your picture us astonishing!!!
jurgen (2074) 2008-03-25 15:28
Looking at your pictures of Lima I found this one. It is really and amazing picture, but it in my 30 years or more that I lived in Lima, I must say it is a false one.
I have really hunted such images in Lima, and as you can see in my gallery, I have not found such a picture opportunity ever in the city or the surroundings. Even in the family albums, there is not such a picture to be found showing so impressive a backdrop of clouds. By the way, in Lima never rains, and never is never. Maybe once every 25 years or so, lasting some 45 minutes, is as much as a real rain Lima encounters. So it just can't be.
Now, can you explain me how you did it? I'm curious.
MarcT (20964) 2008-03-30 6:22
I didn't have to search your site! This is just so incredible, I had to stop on the first picture I saw.
Just amazing, wonderful, incredible...
jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-05-04 1:45
excellent painting scenery, the light is woooow, and this sky !
kyzer (341) 2008-05-10 9:44
what were you doing behind him ... amazing photograph and drama of real life.. excellent capture of the bright and shadowy part of the sun's rays on the clouds...
Bravo.. you faced the thunder storm...
Senk (2331) 2008-05-12 21:25
wow , amazing picture
very good job
woozbman (368) 2008-05-17 13:43
This is great. The sky looks like it's falling. Wonderful colors and composiion.
abulafia (4900) 2008-07-13 1:51
I agree, it looks very dramatic, the long zoom makes it look like you were in a boat just behind him:)
pisces (782) 2008-09-24 3:52
Wow almost reminds me of the movie "The Perfect Storm" although on a smaller scale ;-)
Stunning picture yet almost scary to look at!
batalay (37449) 2008-11-15 7:00
What an astonishingly beautiful photograph. I cannot imagine a more dramatic way to capture this scene that appears surreal, and at the same time, excruciatingly threatening. I see you posted it 18 months ago. I intend to open up some space among my favorites and "hang" it in that gallery.
Yves-triga (5149) 2008-11-17 4:19
Encore une prise superbe.
les effets donnent super bien.
Bien vu en tout cas.
I_WanderingSoul (686) 2008-11-17 4:25
breathtaking indeed! very well shot.
Of all the dangerous skies i've seen till now on TE, this has to be the most dangerous!
All the more so due to the guy in the boat proceeding towards the storm maybe.
But he lends much action to the frame.
jwillie44 (1234) 2009-06-07 15:19
I love it; this is really what you might call a "bird's eye view" ha ha ha ha! :)
thanks for the shot
foibles3 (1399) 2009-07-23 9:01
This is truly an amazing image filled with drama and suspense. The POV places the viewer right into the photo. Nicely done....
emilbo (22616) 2009-09-01 18:03
Un photo vraiment spectaculaire à l'approche de l'orage. Excellente composition à la verticale et beau cadrage mettant la scène en valeur. Une photo pleine de force et de fantastiques couleurs.

I just came across your fantastic gallery and I chose this photo for its dramatic nature, its disturbing influence and its threatening colors. The mood is well delivered and felt by the viewer!
