April 2018 Challenge: On The Water

Recommended Posts

Here are three from me.

 

My sister, and she is in a boat that is on the water, even if the water is not visible. Not sure if that counts.

I don't think the ship is going to make through the gap.

 

Great images Kukkudrill.

Hovercraft coming in for a landing in Niantic Bay during OpSail 2012: (It literally floats on a cushion of air on top of the water)

Coast Guard cadets high up in the rigging of the Tall Ship the Eagle the next day:

Taken onboard the beautiful schooner Tyrone during the Parade of Sail.  Alamy News helped me get press credentials for the event. I was horribly seasick when I took this and the photo above - we'd been out on the water for a few hours before things started because the Eagle's anchor had fouled so we were sitting and rocking and my seasickness meds just weren't up to the task. But I shot a couple hundred photos in between hanging my head over the side, doing my best to be as professional as possible despite being a sickly shade of green.
