Sail Cover December

This photo was taken off Owls Head Light near Rockland, Maine. A really up and coming cruising harbor with great marinas and restaurants - rockland based cruisers are ready to head out into Penobscot Bay for a week of chartering.  You can land at the airport nearby and be sailing some of the best cruising grounds in the world within a half hour... it's kind of Alta and Salt Lake City, you fly in and hit the ground I just need to save up for that ticket to Salt Lake.  You can tell it's December, I am thinking about skiing not sailing!

OYRA Jr Waterhouse Offshore Race

Some nice breakers along the south shore under the golden gate meet the return leg of the OYRA Jr. Waterhouse fleet offshore race, out of Richmond YC. The Big Boat Series ran a course out under the bridge back in 2006.  If they did this every year, a lot more photos would make it out into the press/calendar world, as the back drops up the coast here are simply spectacular, and the waves make for some action.

My Glossy Business Card- Just 22 years in the making...

OK, so it's finally time to make a business card, I know all the "start your own business" books say the first thing you do is make up a really nice card, so I'm only 22 years behind... who has time for this kind of stuff, you know, office work?   Front is of Soozal wiping out in Miami Race Week 2009.  Back is me on the golden gate bridge, great spot for portraits.  I tell other photographers that way to make a small fortune in Marine Photography is just to start off with a large one.  In my case since that wasn't possible it's been a long slow methodical climb to the apex of the yachting photography world, with many stops at the taco bell drive through, and many a days hoarding regatta food for future grazing...

"The Dinner Roll" on a Kite Board (sort of)

Need I say more, here's the whole sequence...  Remember Jonny Moseley?

Picture from the golden bridge San Francisco Ca.  Bring a jacket and your 100-400 zoom if you try this.

Feeder Race 2010

A NY 50 Classic sail by the fans for the feeder race, who don't have to wait in line to buy front row seats...  You can also just barely see the new wind turbines that have been installed on Vinalhaven in the backround.

Syncline, Skyline, 8-track, Sandy Ridge

Devan Wardwell riding a Santa Cruz Nomad on  "Syncline" (see route on Everytrail)  on the Washington side of Hood River.   Some Head Cam Video here of the new trail in Sandy Ridge (see route).   Also the shuttle ride called "8-track" (see route)" in post canyon near hood river.  The trails here are very fast with banked switchbacks and speeds can get upwards of road bike speeds through the woods, here's some footage of the faster part of the Sandy Ridge trail down (blue trail).   Also here's a great cross-downhill mapped route called "skyline"

Punta Laguna Reserve, Mexico.

A Spider monkey taking a siesta; pretty nice when you can just sleep in a tree!  They wake up around 3:30 PM and start their day... hmm I know some college kids that do this.
