Alfredo Balreira

At the mouth of river Douro, in the city of Porto, Portugal

Used Canon 1000D camera with a tripod. Manual exposure, shutter speed 6″, aperture value 4.5, zoom 210 mm, ISO 800. A histogram tweak was made in order to brighten the image.

After three days of attempts to catch the comet,(on 12th, 13th and 14th) only managed to do it last Wednesday, when the weather was fair(yesterday the amount of clouds in the horizon near the sea, didn’t allow any capture). The Moon and some stars were present too.
