Sometimes I head out with a clear idea of the photograph I want to capture. Other times, I don’t have a good idea. On those days I’m not sure why I even head out of the door, especially with the kind of weather we’ve had here in New England in recent weeks.
After finishing up at the conservation area, and getting the image that I showed last week, I headed over to Scituate harbor. I’m not sure what I was expecting – the sky was white, heavy with more snow, and so I had low expectations of making any photographs. Nevertheless I drove over to the harbor to take a look. I was surprised when I got there. The sky had begun to light up and was drawing quite a crowd. Although the photograph doesn’t quite do the scene justice it looked as though someone was shooting a giant laser into the sky. Pretty amazing!
When we sailed into Dutch Harbor towards the end of the 2010 sailing season one of the first things that we noticed was the curious looking trimaran heading out. It turns out this stunning looking boat was ‘Three Little Birds’, an ACC 11 built by Aquidneck Custom Composites. The weekend we visited Dutch Harbor Boat Yard was the first weekend that the owner had been able to take Three Little Birds out. It certainly seemed as though all on board on her were having a blast. Three Little Birds seems to have been well received at the Newport Boat Show and was described in a recent article in ‘Ocean Navigator’.
I was pleased that the owners of Dutch Harbor Boat Yard are using my image of Three Little Birds as the background for one of the pages on their website. Click here to see how they are using it.
I look forward to seeing more of Three Little Birds next season. Hopefully I’ll manage some shots of her ‘in flight’. If I can keep up that is!
