Setting Sails

I am sitting at the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam an want to share a photo with you that I took last week when I was on a sailing trip. This time the photo has been taken with my IPhone 3GS. One can surely complain about the quality of the image but I think the motive stands for itself.


The shot has been taken whilst the Baltic Sea was quite wild. The wind blew up to 6 wind forces.

When I see this photo a song always comes to mind! Listen to it if you like. It is a Post Rock Song!


Set Sail - Scary Kids Scaring Kids


So far I will be on the road the days and weeks to come!

If you are from the Los Angeles area and want to meet for a photowalk or something let me know we will surely find a date to hang out!


So far I wish the best to you from Mexico City!

    Great movement in this composition!

    Wonderful shot, the grain and the roughness of the photo adds to it in my opinion. I love the tilt of the ship, the slap of the water, the sky - it really feels like its charting a new course. You make me wish they had iPhones on the old sailing ships of Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin's time in the Napoleonic wars.
