A made a trip to Florida to see my good friends Peter & Christy. They have a sail boat...and they are in Florida, and I live in the midwest.....and he's a fellow photographer....why wouldn't I want to go! I intended to do some relaxing while down there and take a photo of Peter with his dog Beau for a project you can find on my website of photographers and their dogs. Part of our trip was to sail to St. Petersburg and spend the night anchored in the marina. Well it just so happened that the day we sailed into St. Petersburg, there was a sailing regatta happening. And to get to where we were to anchor, we had to sail through (not dangerously) the middle of the regatta. Since my friends live on the boat, it just so happened that Peter had a long 400mm lens handy, and, well, being a photographer, I just had to shoot some images of this event from a perspective not lots of people get to....right out on the water near the boats. Oh, and then on the sail back, we just happened (once again good luck) upon a wind surfer at a great time of day for light that couldn't have been surfing any better for pictures...I think he was posing for us. Enjoy a few photo snipits!
