Wide angle picture of Norwegian harbor bathed in sunset
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera September 30th 2007. Click image for larger view.

In this photo you can see the harbor where my boat is placed. I was walking home from a fishing trip when I noticed the nice reflection the sunset made inside of the seawall. Love the view you get from using a wide angle lens.

Check out this winter photo from the harbor and here is a picture of waves crashing over the seawall.

Exposure: 0.003 sec (1/400)
Aperture: f/5
Focal Length: 11 mm

Not sure what I was thinking when I look at the EXIF data of the photo.

    My name is Fred. I live here, in the United States, and I have been searching for the “Perfect picture” to use as the background for a Business Card.

    I’ve found that I have a real talent for putting together pictures and videos in one presentation and then converting them into a DVD montage, for people to sit back and share their vacations or occasions with friends and family while watching them on their Television.

    Having searched and reviewed hundreds upon hundreds of sunset pictures, I have come to the resolute conclusion that your picture, taken with the”wideangled lens” of a sunset in Anstad, Anderja Norway is the apex of my search.

    I would like to ask your permission to use this picture as the background of my Business card; advertising your website link as a professional courtesy on the back of the card.

    I would completely respect and understand if you refused, however I am hopeful that my heartfelt request would be acknowledged the affirmative.
    You can send your reply to the above stated email address. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my request.
