Amazing boat -yes a saily thing too!

Jon,
I love that shot and was right there that afternoon out with them.
They had a lot of sail issues and was well into the afternoon before she really got going. By that time, the waves kicked up and I was bouncing around way too much to grab many shots.
DZ was doing 20+knots when I gave up the chase. Thats when the BMW pro shot that frame. With the much larger chase ribs ,they cut through the chop and managed to keep up with her.
Its an amazing boat, that has a terrific turn of speed(that had me scurrying out the way ).
In the one enclosed image you can see two zodiacs steadying the keel while the main chase boat tows her out of dock.

So I need a bigger RIB ! Anyone lend me a 7m Scorpion
Lots more shots at

Look through the two Dogzilla galleries.

Oh forgot, heres the RIB the SA shot was taken from ,as we reached the open ocean from the Bay.
A touch more stable than mine
I should go around all the 6 BMW ribs and stick RIBnet stickers on them all
cheers Dal

Thanks

I just got an 8x10 metallic print of that shot of the medal in Nick's hand. It looks AMAZING on paper, in a decent frame. Simply stunning. I think it just might be the best photo I ever recall taking. I have another print of it to send to Nick & MK. Might just be me, because I know the back story...

That medal in hand shot certainly lends itself to the metallic treatment. My photography technique is along the lines of the machine gun style - keep blasting away and the odds are you will get at least one decent shot out of the bunch so it's really nice to see what can be achieved with a little forethought!

Congrats on the MRI. You must feel like a lottery winner with that news.

You and me both.

OTOH, I do most of my photography underwater, primarily so I can baffle the good topside photogs and make them think I know what I'm doing.

LOL! My two favorite shots from two weeks in China and 3K+ images were total grabs with no planning or forethought whatsoever! The medal in hand shot, and the medal on the flowers & flag. My goal in editing for posting is to save 10% of what I shot. I usually can't bring myself to toss that last 10% and wind up with 20%. Some situations lend themselves to more planning & forethought, sports & events ain't it though!

Stuff like this-


or


Of course, there are probably 10-20 throw-aways for each of those. Everything I save is on Smugmug.

Yes, the MRI news is WAY more important than the medal, that's just icing on the cake...

Some of those fishy shots are quite good jky!

It's pretty easy if you spear them first. (In truth, someone did just that: Big ling, speared, posed, and the pic ended up entered in a contest. Go figure.)

The shots I've got on the site are a very, very small subset of frames taken. I figure I'm publishing (web publishing that is) about 1 in a hundred or so.

Thanks;

jky
