That sounds great Frank. Do you want to run this for two weeks as things are a little quiet? That would make the deadline 27th August.

Sailing. These are from Swiftsure 2012, a big international yacht race hosted by the yacht club in my city. I got to participate on a 42' boat and we had some pretty amazing weather (gale force squalls and big seas).

The first is a squall coming in which looked pretty menacing to me at the time. The waves had been slowly building in strength and the wind was increasing a bit as well... and we had heard gale warnings on the radio. This was the first view of the weather the sea had in store for us, with a couple of boats passing by in the fog:

Image



This is a lone boat following us in after being out all night. Mostly just to show the big size of the sea and the small size of the boats.

Image



This is from a slightly more subdued race on a weekend on a very calm day (my third entry for this contest):

Image



And this is not a submission but is just to show the view from on board :)

Image

Here's an album from Swiftsure for anybody interested: http://visualfiction.org/vfgal/?dir=Swiftsure_2012

Ah.. since we can do three... here are my other two:

This was the cruise ship we were on in Feb for 2 weeks. I took this shot in Aruba to show just how large it was.

On holidays at Lake Nippissing, Ont. This was an abandoned canoe that just stayed put on the beach. We were the only ones there. It was so peaceful.

For $25.00 I rented an Olympus SP350 camera in a water proof box.

1. My sister-in-law Paula and I, last August. The ship was the Holland America Eurodam, a floating city where we lived for
2 weeks as we knocked off a few of our Bucket List countries such as Russia.

Image

2. and 3. Wally and I love Jamaica and try to get there once a year. There's nothing more beautiful than watching
the fishing boats docking at sunset.

Frank, the bad news is that you DO have to pick a winner. The GOOD news is that you don't have to do it until tomorrow! (Mon.) :lol:
