The Story Unfolds

I didn’t realise until I was processing this today and zoomed in that the main yacht in this image is infact ‘Story Teller’ – that I had just recently uploaded a b/w image that I had taken on the same day of their crew as we passed it on the water.

Looks like they did have a story to tell me afterall.

Taken on the weekend of the Red Bull Air Races on the Swan River near Nedlands in Perth, Western Australia. Was so lovely to see a flotilla of yachts out on the calm water – a beautiful sight and day.

Camera – Nikon D90
Lens 55-200mm
Taken from a moving boat – processing using texture layers for tone as well as gradient maps. Free textures from CG Textures as well as my own.
