'Tricolore' On the Northwest Arm?


It was one of those many foggy days we have had this past month
when I glanced to my left along the Northwest Arm trail at the park,
that I noticed two very bright colours flashing through the dark trees.


The red and blue really painted the foggy scene nicely.
And luckily I had my camera and madly began to run after
this  'Tricolore'  (click) sailboat through the park!





















 Phew!

    1. Oh yes there is! Like yesterday and the day before...missed beautiful opportunities.....but I 'recorded' them in my mind's eye.
      have a great day Martha.

  2. Great shots Jim. I really like at the start how you can barely make it out and it becomes progressively clearer to us.

    1. Thanks Craig. I am sure you are are aware of how the fog can mute all colour around us, this was a good opportunity to use our 'lovely' fog to make those colours POP!

    1. I thought it was a strange assortment of colour too Kathy for a sailboat. Could have been a visitor from Quebec on their way south. Who knows? I had never seen it here before.

  5. You have a real photographer's eye -- any flash of colour grabs your attention!

    1. I guess you're right Debra. It certainly gets something triggered in my brain.

    1. Ypu know Linda, it may be the colour that makes this series appealing. Otherwise it would have been a series of fog shots.....Z-Z-Z-Z-Z!

    1. I know! Fog and I don't really like each other at all, never have. But in my dotage,lol, I am beginning to see some benefits.

  10. A super series, and slowly the three colours merge to become a sail, lovely shots through the trees. That is a puzzle solved with your expertise as the sailboat slowly made its way through the water. And look who was also there down by one tall tree!! Greetings from Jean.

    1. Thanks Jean, it was so good to have been able to see and record this boat. Oh Miss Smarty Pants you are!! Yes, Ron and Sophie were up ahead of me getting their 'shots' of this boat when I caught up with them.

    1. Pat, that was what got my initial attention. Too good to not try to capture it.

  12. Such a neat series. The fog adds mystery - maybe there's a pirate ship just around the bend!
