hi folks - it's a bit difficult finding comments without email alerts after a week of not having time to reply, but I will try to say thank-you to everybody -

Armagnac - a name from the past :) how are you? - thanks for the visit and kind words

Б.Ярцев thank-you - the feel at the time was very much like that :)

Flees - I am always pleased to have your good opinion - thank-you

Dasha - I don't have your photo-processing skills, but I was quite pleased to salvage this from a slightly murky out-of -the-camera result

very best regards to all

Fantastic stuff, Graham. There's a lovely natural sharpness here.

Graham Hobbs on November 17, 2009

thanks who - it never ceases to amaze me how there's always something for the photographer on the most un-promising looking day - and this was one when we went out :)

Nice composition Graham, and beautiful contrast between the dark sea and the light sky and sailship.

Kind regards, Justin

Hi Graham - I can just imagine the crew on this yacht saying "It's freezing cold, there isn't much wind and it's getting dark; for heaven's sake put the motor on and get us back to port by the time the pubs open!" Cheers William

Graham Hobbs on January 4, 2010

well maybe you're projecting your own feelings William - you're certainly projecting mine ;D, but it was certainly cold and windless enough on the shore to give more than a little credence to what you say :)

thanks for the visit
