blue boat

..okay, some complained about the featureless sky (including me), some liked the featureless sky (including me).. so i thought of doing a little bit of (sloppy) work and added a blue sky with fluffy clouds.. whee! (now i’m off to bed..)

..there are several ways to go about exploring the islands.. walking, taxi, bus, car, bike and scooter.. the latter option was what i chose during my first day there.. it came with a helmet with the company’s name emblazoned on the forehead, as if to let the locals know that i’m a tourist and a pretty ignorant bloke who’s used to driving at the right side of the road, (they drive at the left side of the road) roads which were pretty skinny, cars were the size of mini coopers.. speed limit was 35kph but everyone was driving faster than that so i sometimes floored the gas on long stretches of the road which was pretty cool, but admittedly dumb.. equipped with a bunch of maps i think i covered a lot of places even though it was raining/drizzling.. i was pretty soaked but had a lot of fun.. and i got home in one piece (despite a few close calls)

..this one was taken on a bay on the western tip of pembroke parish after a 30-minute drive through the blinding drizzle..

Great blue sky 😉 Gotta love the boat too, so colorful and obviously frequently used. Like the pov and feel of depth when looking at the boat, very nice 🙂

Ah and the Guinness extra stout is good too 🙂 I have been tasting some Porters now, and they are even stronger, and quite a mouthful… can take a bit to get used to, but they are tasty too 🙂

You made the right choice…my wife and I chose scooter and it became very close to the very good but very short honeymoon followed by a hospital visit. Doh! I love the sky and overall shot composition. The sand is a bit too warm (appears pink but maybe the calibration of this monitor) for my taste but still a great shot.

Great colours and the boat sits nicely in the frame.
We dare to be different here and suggest that the image might have been just as good without the clouds. As it is it is competing with the boat.
….and, there is no cheating…

Ah warmth and sun and bright colors – must be nice! Like your framing where the boat fills the whole bottom part of the photo and the sky works well because it repeats the blue –
