    Re: Photo assignment: Sailing

    Here comes some fresh pictures from yesterday. The round Ornö race is a quite large competition in Sweden with about 200 competitors. We finished on place 127.









    A complete slideshow can be found here.

      These images are a true pleasure watching.

      They are salty and full of action, and if I close my eyes for a moment, I can almost feel like wanting to go sailing.

        For a couple of weeks ago I attended the Swedish junior sailing championships. Two days of very sunny and warm weather.
        Here are some of my shots from Arkösund in St Annas archipelago:











        And finally a panorama over the harbor area:


        I might post some archipelago pictures from this trip in a near future...

          Some more from Arkösund.


          Looking for a coach boat?


          This is how it usually looks when all sailors are going ashore.
          Quite crowded don't you think? So the sailors from our club decided to do it a bit different, we found a island of our own next to the race course:


          Not too much hassle here. The small white dots on the right is Arkösund, the place where the regatta base was. The races were held on the waters between us and Arkösund.

          So, while waiting for the wind to come I spent my time taking some pictures.


          The view to the opposite direction. The nearest coast is probably Estonia.


          Quality time.

            Now we're a bit off topic, but I just have to show these flowers!








            Some cracks in the rocks have been filled up with rain water, I like the reflections.




            After about 45 minutes of relaxation the wind came and we were heading back to action again.
            My skin was more than tanned after two days in the intensive sunshine.

              I've been published! The hyped sailing and surfing magazine 'Search' have featured three small images on page 76. They feature a lot of great images, so this is some kind of breakthrough for me.
              You can read the magazine on-line.

                    Congratulations! Being published and recognized is an awesome thing in life: it really makes you want to excel more, do more and have it done again... I think I might have mentioned it somewhere else, but if you remember my trip to Tverrfjellet and the new Snøhetta building on-top of that mountain, the architect company wanted three of my images for a "Promotional Architects Exhibition" in Barcelona recently. I got a lot of cudos (by e-mail) after having been displayed in Barcelona, on the exhibition.

                      CONGRATULATIONS Tommi!
                      I feel so proud when something like this happens to one of our CV family. I hugely admire your photography, and I have no doubt that this well-deserved achievement is only the beginning.

                        Today we had the rests of hurricane Katia blowing around here in Strängnäs. I couldn't resist to get out and photograph some dinghy training.






                        Hang tight!




                        Uups!

                          Panning shot seems to be a bit trendy:



                          My ride was however a bit bumpy!

                            Today we arranged a race for keel-boats.


                            The kids from the last posts came in a slightly bigger boat today.


                            Nice reflections.


                            An old classic.


                            The sun was setting.


                            And then came the rain. A pretty impressive cold front. These clouds rolled in a couple of moments after the last competitor had crossed the finishing line. They created a pretty eerie atmosphere.
