A small lake Darren took us to. So pretty and quiet. These sail boats were trying out different sails, so was fun to watch.
Small amount of buzz added in PSP X to hide the awful dandilions that seem to engulf the grounds and then replaced the boats back in.
F6.3, 1/80 Sec. , 70-300 Lens, Polarizer and tripod.
Thanks Darren for a wonderful morning!
