Taken while out sailing recently on Belfast Lough, Northern Ireland.

This was taken on my HTC Mobile phone, and unfortunately was not great quality as it was very rough and I was sailing my own boat at the time. So to make use of this image, which I quite like, I edited it in photoshop and turned it into a “painting” using various filter effects and applied a canvas texture.
