130 - Sail We Must


Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it -- but sail we must and not drift, nor lie at anchor. Oliver Wendell Holmes

Wow, where is this? Eleuthera doesn't have mountains!

That's awesome! You look like an adventurer in some remote corner of the world entering the wild and unknown (well, I guess you really are :-)

I love the implied motion that the wake gives. You look focused on what ever is ahead. The mountains/hills look exotic.

I like how the canopy covers up the sky and how it does not dip down to cover up the horizon in this frame.

This is just a great shot that really speaks to me. I feel like I'm on your boat and feeling the breeze.

Thanks for the visual escape this morning as I sit in my slave-to-the-man cell :-)

Dang- I forgot one more thing: the red hat! Your hat color makes this whole thing great. It wouldn't be the same photo without that red hat.

Great Pic! I really like the mountains in the background, you're definitely a long way away from Biscayne Bay! Looks familiar...
