Taken in the middle of February on a friends boat in Belfast Lough.

For me sailing is the ultimate escape. It symbolises freedom to me, just being on the sea means your on a medium that covers 3/4 of the worlds surface. Every time I go out sailing, there is a spirit of adventure that comes over me, I have tried to capture that here in this Image.

    What a marvellous capture, Chris. Wonderfully composed and such vibrant colours!

  • Cheers Mike! I didnt think it would turn out as well as it did as it was just a quick snap without any thought put into it! Theyre usually the ones that work the best! (says a lot for my photography skills!!!)
