Shooting one passion with another on Friday

Good Friday from Prospect.

f3.5 1/20 ISO125

This is not the exciting story I've been eluding to. This is one of my pastimes combined with another. I not only enjoy sailing keelboats but I also love to sail RC sailboats. On top of that I really enjoy building them and here I'm photographing  them in progress.

These are two I've been commissioned to build, for what will become two new members in the Boddingtons Deep Draught Yacht Club ( ). A NSYA sanctioned club dedicated to the enjoyment of competing against your sailing peers in search of bragging rights and of sharing good times with friends.

Enjoy these and have a great weekend. All images shot with Canon 5D mkII and Canon 16-35L II f 2.8 under floresents.

Enjoy, Derek

So where have I been lately

Good Tuesday from Prospect.

7:00 AM in Prospect. The fog doing it's down the river dance.

The geometry is beautiful
Now this is a September morning
Okay so here's the thing. Been a little busy working again. It's that eating thing I can't shake.

I haven't posted since August and I said I'd stay on it. I certainly have been thinking about it and I've been nagged to get it moving let me tell you.

On top of that, working on private projects automatically invokes an unspoken non-disclosure. At least until the project is done.

So, while I'm waiting to be able to share what I've been up to with you I'll fire in some photos from Prospect Bay.

I love the geometry of our little bay here in Nova Scotia along with the ever changing weather conditions.

Couldn't resist throwing this one in from August
What can I say, I love em
This summer has been amazing. Wonderful weather and lots of photo ops. Even the fog has been entertaining and co-operative.

Hopefully I'll be sharing some cool stuff shortly. It's all about clearance on ongoing projects.

Well I hope you enjoy these.
