This is the one I like the best of that series because of the sun's reflection in the water and the higher contrast that it project of the sailboat in the water and the sky.

It's true. Sun's reflection in the water and higher contrast that is project of the sailboat makes it special. Thanks for sharing Bonneau.

Excellent work.

I am curious - that is a long breakwater (perhaps 2500 feet ~ 830 meters), and you were on the very end. The sun was about to set. Did you have to find your way back in the dark, or are there lights on the breakwater?

Ghislain Bonneau on February 27, 2010

Hi Austin, Thank you for your praise, and realize that on that day there was many tall ship going back in the harbour since it was at the Tall Ship Festival. This was not the only ship that came back but was one of the last. Soon after the sun had set I started my long way back before it got too dark, and don't worry there is sufficient light after the sunset to get back. I don't think there is lights directly on the brake water since there is no post on it and no fence either. It it very dangerous for kids that go there. There is some light post just beside the breakwater where the Cruise Ship Terminal is. I never went there in the dark and I always came back in time before total darkness since there is sufficient light long after the sunset.

Best Regards..................GHISLAIN.☻
