Wednesday @ the lake

Yesterday I went to the lakefront to take picture of a beautiful sunset, or birds, or something nature-y, but a large cigar boat seemed a little more interesting at the time.  There was an entourage of 30ish people, 3 trucks, 2 boats and even a few mopeds.  Apparently in 2 weeks there is a large boat race, and this team was getting a time trial.  It took a LONG time to get the boat in the water and ready to go, and an LONG time to get the boat back in and ready and they spent about 7 minutes on the actual trial runs. All of the pictures are from the lake, some of the boat, others of the area around the lake.

The moon was amazing that night.  (Check out the first picture in my post yesterday for another moon picture)

As it became darker the boat almost glowed.  The sky looks really blue compared to the boat

I wonder how much money they spent on gas in 7 minutes! :) The blue and yellow are great color complements.

I took photos of the moon too but haven't posted any yet.

Hi, Carly... what neat shots of that boat. You're right, it does glow in that last one. And 200 MPH? Yikes!

I loved the sepia shots of the moon. I just love Florida, and you always capture things I like to see.

Happy OW to you...

Sheila :-)

Being yellow, the boat would be hard to miss. ;-)

That moon is absolutely stunning in sepia. Full of mischief, I can almost see the face on its surface...The sepia seems to outline the building well, and the look overall is almost like a negative of a print. Both are wonderful!

I love the lighting in the sepia shots & the motion in the shots of the boats - Incredible!
