Red Sailboat at Bahia Honda state park
|Bahia Honda clear waters and Red Sailboat|
Then my luck changed: small red sailboat arrived as the tide was going out. A sandbar just underneath the water level was easy to look right through. Crystal-clear waters were spectacular. I tried several compositions with this sailboat and some distant clouds. Then my luck improved again and a small piece of seaweed rolled by with the outgoing tide. It got stuck on the shallow sand. This provided a wonderful foreground object.
All the elements aligned in my favor. I took several pictures and found this one to be my favorite of them all. I was certainly lucky. I was also prepared when the moment arrived.
