I had a magical moment one night, with a big fat orange full moon setting dead ahead as the sun rose behind us.. crystal clear early March night.. very special. Unfortunately the pictures didn't do it justice..

I knew that I could not take a decent picture but the moment was so magical that even so I tried. They are not out of focus but shaken. The exposition time was too big and yes the boat was going fast and smooth.

I dunno - is that a stinger on his tail?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Well that's the first time seeing these photos and I want to say thanks for posting. As someone new to sailing, what all these photo's do is reinforce the desire to be part of this community. There are some pretty talented folks here with cameras, they look professional, thanks!
