Default Time for an afternoon sail

Walking the dog down by the harbour and these brave lads decided to go for a sail. These 49er skiffs are little rockets, but very "moist" to say the least. And the Lake is starting to cool. With the clouds chasing about I did my spot metering from the hull so the boat and sails maintained a uniform brightness

Looking for the air


Feeling a little pressure as they start to clear the wind shadows in the harbour


Oh, here's the wind


On the wind and starting to fly Yeehaa


When I was more adventurous, would have considered this great fun

I agree with the others, well done and a very scenic area to say the least.

Thanks all for your comments. As Lake Ontario never really gets what you would call warm, these fellows sail all year in thermal wet suits and they often get dunked (or as they say down-under "Go from a peacock to a featherduster"). But now that the air has a nip to it, these guys are foolishly brave! Catching them against the backdrop of the leaves just adds to the magic.
I was down there this morning, the light was amazing, put the camera to my eye and nutz, forgot to load a memory card. Maybe tomorrow...

And the card was in your computer wasn't it. I've been known to do that.

As a matter of fact, there is a stack of them sitting by the computer, where they are most useful!
