The morning sky was filled with gray storm clouds, rolling in an anticipated evening storm. I wasn't happy with the photos I made for the County yesterday at the Maritime Museum, mostly because of the sky, today's sky was perfect.


The photo of the port side was made yesterday, the bow was made today. There's not much sky in the bow photo, but enough.


Both photos are HDR images made with the Canon 5d mkII and processed with Photomatix Pro and Photoshop.


I finished the Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy. All were definitely thrillers, but I liked The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo best. Larsson is an engaging writer and develops his characters as if he is writing a biography. So the books start slow, but build to the point where I couldn't put them down.

I'm starting Hemmingway's To Have and Have Not,  today.

Never confuse movement with action.

I may be landlocked, but I feel like water and boats are always calling me!

I love these photos. The boats have amazing colour and texture. I think both skies are beautiful.
