A couple of weeks ago I was invited to sail in a schooner challenge out in Gloucester Harbor. If you know me at all you know I said yes before the invitee finished his sentence. The schooners Thomas E. Lannon and Ardelle were going to have a fun race around Gloucester Harbor in the late afternoon, early evening. I grabbed my trusty Canon 1D Mk2 with the 16-35 and the Canon 7D with the 70-200 and headed to Gloucester. The weather was kind of iffy with thunder storms coming through but I figured, hey, we are sailors, we sail in anything. We waited inside until the worst of the weather passed and headed out for the contest with a dark sky but with no thunderstorms coming in. A light sprinkle was present during the first leg of the race but the sun burst through underneath the dark clouds at just the right moment for the photograph above. The light rain added some spots on my lens when I shot into the sun but I think they add to it. This was made with the 16-35 at 16mm with the exposure at 1000 of a sec at f10 at ISO 1000.
