ah, man, this looks nice!

What's the story with those boats at your mapped position?

You know I will have to get back to you on that one, I think they are something like the Dragon boats where they take groups out on rowing excursions. They must hold about 25 people each!

Ken, this is very nice. How did you get a steady shot from the boat???

Thanks for the comments, believe it or not I handheld this while sitting in the boat, took about 5 or 6 identical shots of which 2 were acceptable. I guess the VRII really worked on this one. Oh and I did wait a few minutes for the boat to settle down before pressing the release. One more thing, I also remember timing my shots with the tops of the waves if that makes sense.

Fun story -- photography as a performance sport! Maybe there should be a group for this sort of thing -- probably is one.

Your probably right about that Ken.
