Patience, patience

Taking photos from the deck of a sailboat in choppy water is like balancing on a teeter-totter. You have to learn to anticipate the wave movement (remember that every 7th wave or so tends to be bigger than the rest) and let your body sway in tandem with the swells while trying to keep your arms, hands and camera steady.

That’s why I was so pleased with these photos.

Mind you, to get the close-to-perfect shot, you have to take at least a dozen that are anything but!
