A few years ago I was lucky enough to visit the Capernaum, which was a fishing village in the time of the Hasmoneans. Located on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, it is where archaeologist excavated two ancient synagogues built one over the other. A church near Capernaum is said to be the home of Saint Peter.

Now all this is pretty amazing stuff and I for one would not miss out on a day sightseeing, unfortunatly this day started with one almighty hangover which called for loads of water and a good pair of sunglasses, now to most this is not a big problem, however what I managed to do was take shots of the whole day with my exposure turned right up, because I kept my sunglasses on.

Ok so you are wondering where this is going, well I finally bit the bullet and have got Lightroom 5 and by the look of things so far, I have managed to save a lot of very over exposed photos.

  2. I have LR4 currently and it was a huge step up with my photography


  3. Fantastic shot by the way!


  4. You would never know! Beautiful shot!


  5. nice textures and tones 🙂


  6. I am irritated to say – that I commented on this post via my Phone Ap and it hasn’t appeared grr. I too use Lightroom 5 but have purchased the Adobe cloud photography deal £8.74 a month for both this and Photoshop CC a bargain in my mind.


  7. hope to visit Galilee soon 🙂


  8. A stunning capture Mark!
