Doesn’t this look fun? Tranquil? I think some Impressionisth should have done a painting of this pair.

  1. What a great selection of photos. I particularly like the first one but the water in the last one is also really interesting. It’s interesting that it is Pittwater because at first glance it looked like a roiling river rather than a harbour/inlet.


  2. Nice selection of photos to match the prompt. I like Violet’s remark about seeing how today’s race rivals would do under the older conditions? Might be fun to find out! 🙂


  3. Excellent choices to match our theme. I like the three different perspectives for the camera.


  4. Love these photos! When I was a teen, my family had a camp on a lake that we visited on weekends. For quiet time away from my parents and younger siblings, I loved to row to the end of the lake, “park” among the reeds and read a book or just watch the dragonflies. An excellent form of exercise, as these women illustrate!
