Twilight Sailing.....


This is the last and possibly my favourite of the pictures I took last Saturday from the lookout point at Henderson Cliffs, the sun was going down and glaring into my eyes, I could see the yachts away in the very far distance and basically pointed, clicked and hoped for the best. I had to zoom in to the max so the quality is a bit grainy, even so I was really happy when I downloaded to find I had actually managed to get the yachts in the frame (you might have to click and enlarge). I like the way their jewel coloured sails look against the glow of the sun going down and how the land behind the yachts looks almost like a mirage. Might make a good watercolour oui? Well the week is winding down once more and hopefully a happy weekend ahead, take care and stay safe.....

  6. That is utterly gorgeous! Even before I read your post, I thought: it looks just like a painting! Love those bright sails and the serene scene, aah!

    (Enjoyed your comment about the vintage shop, it's a fun place to spend a few too many hours! :)

  8. You're right! This pic is special. The sun against the sails makes it something very special. They have a unique back lighting quality to them. Really cool! When I saw your post for Friday, I got a little excited until I realized it's still Thursday in the States here:) Bummer!

  9. I've got a paint program that makes photos look like this. But you did it on your own! Delightful. It looks rather like a watercolour, or perhaps more like colored pencil. Whatever, I love the sailboats and the colors. Great job!

  10. The photos are wonderful and take me right into the mix of water and the crack of the sails. The backlighting gives the sails the appearance of colorful hard candies!

  11. That would look so good enlarged and framed - it has a painterly quality.

  16. I think it already looks like a painting. NOt sure how I found my black cat, probably on someone else's blog. If you click on the link below it you'll get to the text for the cat. On the left of that page is a stack of other stuff but the only other pet I could see was a fish.

  17. I love all of the sail colors. Also the color of the whole photo is great too.

  18. This is incredible, Grace. It looks like a painting, not a photograph, or a heavily processed photograph. You are getting pretty good at this stuff, aren't you?
