Sail

The Daily Word Prompt from Sheryl: Sail

I know this is a repeat but I love this photo from a week ago when we had a bit of a working holiday for a few days

Pink #6

My sixth photo for Becky’s square photo challenge: In the Pink

We were tickled pink to be first in the yacht race until the bigger yachts opened their spinnakers

If you want to join in here are a few ideas from Becky.

The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;

  1. In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
  2. Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
  3. Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
  4. There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?

Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.

Here they come

Frank has chosen Pink as the theme for the Tuesday Photo Challenge. I was going to recycle the paint can but I thought I must have some other pink here somewhere, other than flowers.

I took this photo with an old camera as I wasn’t too sure about taking my best camera aboard the yacht. We were leading the final race home after about 10 days of sailing from Grafton to Iluka on the Clarence River. Suddenly a breeze blew up and all the larger yachts put their spinnakers up and came zooming up behind us. It looked great from our little boat. Unfortunately the wind died and everyone was becalmed so the race was cancelled.

Don’t the yachts look great with their coloured sails?

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge Letters Y or Z

The Letters Y or Z did pose a bit of a challenge especially Z but here goes…..

A while ago, I did a seven day yacht trail down the Clarence River from Grafton to Iluka with a number of other sailors. This was my first time sailing. We managed to stop at a number of pubs on the way.

This the yacht at sunset on a peaceful days end,

Near the end the weather had turned and the sky darkened at sunset

I had a lot of the little Yellow-faced Honeyeater photos to chose from

The hard one was Z. Luckily I remembered the flower photos and dug out this lovely Zinnia. It is a pale yellow variety.
