Sunset Ijselmeer

During the 24Hours race it was the only time we were allowed to sail on night and therefore the only day I got a sunset picture.

This was called by me as "Darkoldfashiopiratelikeboatwithweirdsails"  unfortunately the weird sails are not shown completely here but still they were sort of diferent.

I wish I knew the names

Of all the ships I saw.  this was of the old-kind-type with more than one mastile and "kiel" on the side. As the flowers I usually make up my own names of boats.

On Deck

After a couple of days I handle to stay on foot on deck and when the water and wind is calmed I was able to start taking some pictures of sail boats

This was the first time I was going to try a Picture while the Boat was moving.

I found a little window that would allow me to take them from the room, without any danger of me(or the cammera) to fall down or get wet.

I put the 300mm lens to take a shot of a ship that was far away. and while on a hurry. I did not notice that I left it in M ( manual ) with the previous configuration of the night before. So I just point to my far away objective and shoot.

What a suprise when I saw what I capture.... In that exact moment another ship was traveling in the oposite direction and cover most of my view. But it generated another nice picture just by coincidence.

I like the effect on how many things just blow away as oversaturated but still looks nice. and also take a look on the effect on the bottom which looks like a white gradient. Even if someone might think this picture was digitally modificated... believeme it was not. and this is just as it came out of the cammera.


And I really like this one.But unfortunately I can not take any credit for it... It was a coincidence :-)

If you are asking yourself why I have been posting photos not regarding sailing directly, well the reason is simple...
The first days I was kind of fighting for my life while trying to stay on foot. I must say that with a inclination of more than 35° it is no easy task to walk and do some other stuff. So Taking my cammera out would be kind of risky, many things were just flying all over the place and I did not wanted the cammera to be one of them.

Here a picture I could take with my phone, not amazing on quality but it shows a little tilt on it .. ( look also at the towel behind )


above  I mentioned ... some stuff.. did you think on anything on the mean time?....

Did you know that you are NOT allowed to use the bathroom when you are on the Docks?
