Regatta


There was a regatta off Naples Beach this past weekend.  I shot into the sun
when one colorful sailboat was approaching.  Since I have no idea what
I am doing when attempting difficult shots like this one, 
sometimes I end up with nice effects.
Better lucky than good.

Nice one, Jack. I bet most famous photographers are sometimes lucky too, just don't admit it.

Pretty good for a guy that does not what he is doing.

That's a glorious scene. Love the grey and dark red tones.

How great to be out and about, Jack. I am STILL recovering from the flu; been a difficult time. As soon as I feel better, I will get out to take some photos. In the meantime, I'll continue to visit and comment!

"We all get lucky sometimes." Was that Tom Petty that told me that?

Love the sparkles on the water. 'Luck is where opportunity meets preparation.'

Great shot of this sail boat on a down wind run with its colorful spinnaker sail set. Luck? No, you knew exactly what you were doing.
