Sail Away ..........



~  Marina Pier  ~

If I was going to sail away .... it would be on one of these
beautiful sleek catamarans

 


A few months ago a group of us booked an evening sail
with the aim of taking sunset shots with our dslr's
concentrating on things like aperture value - shutter speed and time exposure.
 After leaving the protection of the marina and hitting the high seas
it was all I could do to hold onto the railing and my camera!!

 These pics were taken from the safety of dry land when all was calm.

A lovely marina! I love sailing, but it is very difficult to snap pics unless the water is very calm.

You spell your name the best way, in my biased opinion! I was admiring your photos, they are lovely. You achieve a wonderful clarity, which really enhances the composition of your shots. I am not much of a photographer, but as a painter, I really appreciate your work. I found you through "Paris Through My Lens," another talented photographer.
I love your autumn pictures, stay warm!

Beautiful boat, but you do need calm water it you want to take pics! But a perfect way to sail into the sunset! I love it! Great captures for the day, Dianne! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

shooting while in a boat is always challenging, especially when the waves are cooperating. this is a lovely marina...would love to ride in one of these, too.:p

hi seas of an evening sounds very courageous to me Diane; you shared the best of it it seems...

Reminds me of when we went out on a boat whale watching. It was very difficult to focus on the whales. Wishing you calmer seas next time Dianne.

Cheers.
