Nocturnal Symphony: Seagulls' Ballet on the Brine

Under moon's watchful eye, seagulls pirouette, their silhouettes stealing from the net. Seagulls trying to steal their dinner. The captain Agonia Torrao and his team of 20 fishermen sailed over to Atlantic Ocean during one of the coldest nights in Portugal (23.2.2023) with temperatures reaching 0 degrees. After several days of struggle after midnight they finally succeed to obtain fish and thus earn money for their respective families. It was the last night of their 10 days working shift.
