    Re: Photo assignment: Sailing


    Saturday started a bit greyish.


    But it got better.


    Autumn colors everywhere.


    Cold-sailing-gloves.


    And the dock for the night.

      Sunday morning. This was the time when I started considering filming.


      The view from our Lunch-restaurang. It was quite windy.

        These are very good pictures.... very artistic and they clearly show that you have a sense of detail and photographic eye.

        Some would have thought these are "faulty shots" but when I look at them, I sense a certain level of planning and a certain sense of wanting to "be there".

        Well done, Tommi.

          One of the biggest sail races in Sweden, Lidingö runt ("a round Lidingö island") was sailed yesterday. I had a whole day on the shores of the rather big island taking pictures. A very varying weather it was.


          Panning shots are standard at CVF, but I wonder what the sailors think?


          Pretty tight racing with big boats, these are 35-footers.




          Uups!


          Somebody might wonder, why is he laying there? I can come to think about two reasons, lookout - that big spinnaker is really huge, weight distribution - the most boats makes a little less resistance in the water when the aft is lifted up a bit.


          A very mixed variety of boats.

            Purple reflections.


            The wind increased every time it started raining.

              Why stop smiling just for some small showers?

                There's a lot of sailing going on for the moment. This saturday we attended a huge sail race in the Stockholm archipelago called "Ornö runt". The weather was really fantastic and we had a great time.












                Look, there's a boat on the boat! And a solar panel in the boat on the boat!

                  A lot of boats! About 175 of them to be more exact.

                    That's some pictures from the race. I'll get back soon with some Stockholm and shipspottning photos.

                        Dear Tommi,

                        Please do let me shoot in here and tell you that you are a true master of sail-photography! So very enjoyable to see your images, so crisp and so detailed I can almost taste the wind and the water!

                          It's 95 square metre Skärgårdskryssare, more information about the boat can be found here: http://www.lamorena.se/. The design is probably from the same period of time, so the concept and look is quite the same as the J class.

                            Today I was in charge for a regional dinghy race here in Strängnäs. Quite ok weather, really nice winds, and plenty of contestants.

                                The last weeks there have been plenty of wind in Swedish waters. This Monday we had about 10-12 m/s in Öresund where the Swedish junior championships were held. Lots of waves, lots of wind plenty of rain.
