Centuries ago people thought Earth was flat. And if you would sail far enough, you could fall over the edge… I don’t know where you would end in that case, but I’m sure it wasn’t good. After sailing over several oceans and seas I was already quite sure this wouldn’t happen and now this picture really shows Earth is round.

This picture is also taken with my new fish-eye lens. The main reason I bought this lens was to be able to capture wide landscapes like this in the Dutch Wadden Sea. In my opinion this picture is a bit too empty, the line of the water should be a bit stronger. Like I’ve said before, this is not an easy lens (but if I succeed, I’m sure the pictures will be great!).
