Struggle

Struggle. A small part of the wonderful Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers) by Bernini, in Piazza Navona in Rome, taken on my 2010 'Grand Tour II' (I blogged about the trip at the time and the Rome section is HERE). Four exuberant figures represent four great rivers – the Nile, the Danube, the Ganges and the Plate – but it was this delicate and exquisitely carved hand on its own against the pure blue sky that for some reason made me think of a cry for help. Well, a strong picture that's a personal favourite, though never popular with club judges!

Technical: NIKON D300, f=150.0 mm, ISO400, 1/1250 sec @ f8.0
