In just a few days, these waters will host The Head of the Charles Regatta, “the largest 2-day regatta in the world, with nearly 9,000 athletes rowing in over 1,900 boats in 61 events.” But on this day, as a glorious autumn sun sets, they’re just rowing for gold.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    wow! what a shot once again! the composition, light and golden tone with the mix of purple are simply amazing. you are great!

  • And once again you’ve got me giddy with pride! Thank You Manon. Been so lucky with golden end of day light lately and this one was stunning. So when that boat glided out from the bridge beneath me (was so quiet didn’t hear them coming), oars rippling the water with movement and pattern, I was so lucky to “click” before they slipped onto the gold. ;-)

    great shot, are you planning to shoot Reggata this weekends?

  • Thanks Luda! No plans for the regatta but may stop by the river if I have time. But if I do, won’t make it all the way down to the course. Last year I found boats hanging out between Kenmore and the Mass Ave Bridge before/after they raced. Not close to the colorful action found further upriver, but enough for me and simple enough to fit in between during a busy weekend. ;-) You shooting the race?
