On the way to Naxos on a ferry, upon viewing the sailboat, had to rush outside on the deck to try and capture this before it disappeared from view... thank goodness the ferry boat was not crowded. This is the result, still happy that I caught it. Thanks so much for comments and advice.

Well captured Vicki....A quick reflex with your camera caught a great post!...

This one would be ideal for the current contest 'Breaking the Rules' too

Vicki, I've enlarged your image bigger than a full screen size image, and saw that the sailboat had anchored there (in a sealane?) without using the proper black anchoring sign in the mast.
A risky situation, because the people on the bridge of this ferry, responsible for a safe navigation, could have been brought in doubt now. To me bad seamanship of the sailors on this sailboat.
Fine capture however, and a good entry for the current contest.
Good Luck with it, my friend!

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Congrats Vicki on winning the contest. I expected that this would win and had voted for it because it is a true spontaneous take with "broken rules".

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
