Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

I need some help here. This thread is not a pleasure anymore...the photos, all of them turned pale, low definition and uninteresting. No more fun to post nice photos to see them in a horrible way.

I thought that if photos were hosted and linked from an outside provider, like photobucket, there would not be a problem with space in sailnet and we could have nice photos. Am I wrong?

Why all the photos, even the old ones turned low definition? Or they are as they always were and it is my internet connection that is a slow one and the PC just shows them with low def?

Regards

Paulo

Ditto - they look like dreams on mine.

paulo, I think it is your PC. Go back a page - if those sunsets are not the most glorious, vibrant orange, you are really missing something....

They are such high definition that I can zoom in on your boat's window and see the naked person on the settee.

It's your connection. Feel free to come over and view them at my place any time. (open invitation)

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Thanks guys. I have a new laptop and it seems it is a smart one. As for sure I have a slow internet connection, a mobile one in Greece the laptop automatically present pictures at very low resolution to allow a decent speed.

Thanks to all again.

And since they look good, some more, from the homeland of Archimedes, Siracusa.

Lovely town, great anchorage, great wine and food.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Here is my picture perfect moments from this weekend. I was out all day with the family sailing on our new boat in the rain and my wife had to go home for some studying. I decided to stay the night on the boat and do some fishing. I hadn't singlehanded yet and just planned to motor to my favorite anchorage and hang out. But, after fishing and not catching anything, I really didn't want to hear the motor, so I raised sails and sailed off my anchor for the first time. As a reward I was given an unbelievable evening of sights.

First a sunset to the north as the storm cleared.




And then I turn around and this is what I see the to the south...


What an evening. This was the view as I sailed to my spot for the night. Then to top it all off, as I was sitting with a glass of wine in the cockpit, the nearby town had a fireworks display! Didn't get a picture of that but what a great evening.
