    In the wake....

    A really, really simple image this one.

    This is really terrific, but take that from a sucker for diagonals.

    Shame on you for not explaining how you got this perspective. I think it's probably from a boat but I'm still trying to figure out how you got the motion in the upper left corner but not elsewhere. Sandwiched two images? (That wasn't the case the last time I asked, but I'm persistent.)

    Mike... I am flattered that you think I would know how to sandwich two images...I imagine it involves layers and the dreaded photoshop.


    Perspective wise I was hanging over the railings of the Mull to Oban ferry with himself yelling 'I really..REALLY hope you have a grip of that camera'.

    It could have been a very different shot but as it was a smooth crossing no one was throwing up!

    Here's another shot you might like and you can see how the water is

    Nice pink colors in the second one!

    I think I figured out how you got the blur in the plain blue water in the first one. The waves were coming toward you, so the effective speed that the shutter had to stop was the combined speed of the waves and the boat. Your shutter was fast enough to stop the action of the wake produced by the boat but not the water next to the wake. Did I get that right?

    Well...if you are asking if I shot on shutter priority instead of my usual Aperture priority then the answer would be yes.

    If you are asking me about the physics of boat meets wave v's speed of both divided by a haggis... then I really haven't got a clue.

    I wasn't.

    I don't either. I just took a good guess, which is not to be confused with an educated guess.

    Thank you Christina.

    Mike..haggis equations are such a biatch.

    A really nice photo. I can't articulate why, but the wide white border works very well.

    I ate haggis when I visited your country. That's because I'm eager (not just willing) to try anything once. Now that I have, I have decided that haggis should be removed from all equations.

    Brilliant answer! And great shots - second one for me. Thank you, Sharon.

    Nice image, I thought I was looking at the waves approaching a beach.

    Fascinating simplicity.

    The recipe for another visual pleasure.

    I read somewhere that diagonals are dynamic, horizontal timeless and verticals power. Didn't know you had an airplane but it would be interesting on a wall wouldn't it.

    Yes great image I thought you were in a helicopter looking down on a beach break.
