Wonderful capture with the shimmer on the water and the concentration of the old man.

I swear that we have guys like these with the identical attire!

Lowell said...

Love this photo! It's so well-exposed and the light is wonderful. I didn't know you could catch octopi in this manner. :)

I swear we have them too, but catching crabs! Now I want octopus for dinner. Sorry about that...

Dina said...

Nice subject for a photo but that's not a job I would like.

RedPat said...

Wow - they are that close to shore?

Kay said...

I've seen people doing that here.

William Kendall said...

Neat shot!

Randy said...

Not something I would try.

Bob Crowe said...

I would never have guessed it was done like this or that octopi came this close to shore. The man looks experienced.

It's a wonderful photo, but I admit I hope he didn't catch anything.

i didn't realize octopus stay in shallow water. i haven't seen one of this fisherman solely catching octopus.

This is a great shot but I always feel sorry for captive octopuses, especially those destined for the dining table. They are highly intelligent and very appealing in a slithery way.

Nice shot !
One question : Do you know the coast around Mira (between Ovar and Figueira da Foz)? Any place to recommend (or to avoid) ?
