Yacht racing photography Pushing to the limits. Turning so close to the starting marker is an impressive display of the control the skipper has over the yacht in a gamble to gain valuable seconds, as a strong gust of wind could spell disaster with the yacht as such a precarious angle, the crew, undaunted by it all continue to prepare to race for open seas.

Yacht racing photography Crew on Deck
Tying off masts, dropping sails and raising sails is all part of the teamwork required by deck hands and at certain points during the racing the decks are a blur of activity as such tasks must be completed efficiently. Here a mixed crew of ladies and men work quickly to get underway for open waters.

Just love how the hull cuts through the waves in this photo, I was down on my knees hanging out the back end of a fishing boat trying to get as close to the waters surface as I dare, not so much for my safety but concern of digital cameras and salt water not mixing too well together.

Yacht racing photos - Taking a very sharp turn

Yacht racing photos - Taking a very sharp turn
Yacht racing photos - Taking a very sharp turn
I was on one knee at the back of the press boat (a small fishing boat with two powerful engines) when I turned to see the 'Lauraus' not eight feet away with bow squared straight at me, my head was about the same height as the crews shoes. A very sharp turn from the Lauraus and a dash forward by our skipper saved me one hell of a headache! The sharp turn toppled a crew member who had to be grabbed quickly or she would likely have gone overboard. Exciting stuff.

With hulls exposed and bow cutting into the water I was amazed at how fast these quite giants could cut through the water, from shores edge they appear to be moving quite sedately, but up close I could hardly get shots off before the yachts had passed leaving less dramatic photos of the stern fading into the Caribbean Sea. Love the full sails and open view of the hull as the yacht turns course.

For something a little different, as most photographers can imagine if they have not done so, getting up close and personal with racing yachts is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Lots of color, plenty of action and super to photograph. The skipper on the press boat really got us in the action and I had a thrilling time trying to capture the energy of these large and very fast moving yachts.

Cat photo - Cat of the day is Rocky, aptly named as his rear legs were disjointed from birth, so he tends to rock from side to side as he walks. His jumps more resemble that of a Kangaroo than a cat, but he gets by just fine.

Bright Floral Centerpiece - Invigorate the senses
It is normal practice in flower photography to lose the background, however I feel in this instance the backdrop places this vibrant floral centerpiece in a delightfully inviting atmosphere. A romantic dinner overlooking the Caribbean Sea, I don't know about you, but that would suit me nicely.

Sunset photos - Majestic Palm Trees. Standing like sentries to time itself tall coconut palm trees stand silently at dusk. Once the lifeblood of the Island, these majestic giants are slowly but steadily falling to bulldozers and what society calls advancement, but real people know better. Sunset photos of private houses and guest apartment buildings just do not have the same appeal to me.

Wild plants photography : Bird Pepper (Capsicum frutescens) flower. The dainty flowers of the bird pepper plant attract tiny insects required to pollinate the flowers, while the ripened peppers (seeds) attract several species of birds that ingest the hot and slightly spicy peppers (seeds), new plants growing from where the seeds are dropped once they have passed through the bird. Also great for cooking with or even eating raw.
