Fiddling about with a shot from an old yellow waterproof (!)
APS minolta ..

A first go with a touch of drybrush effect

Taken aboard a wonderful yacht off the French normandy coast near Cherbourg, the deck newly scrubbed!

I must go back to the sea again … and get a better shot while I’m there….LOL …wishing hard here…!

Am happy to send the file to anyone interested.. and have seen a wonderful artwork already …. Homeward Bound by betha

    Lovely shot Maggie, makes me yearn for the open sea- had a great wee sail down in Poole harbour last weekend with my old cruising pals and it woke up so many memories, what a strange and strong call the sea can make on us.. Peter
