I went back to Gas Works Park on Lake Union last evening thinking of capturing non-nautical images, such as silhouettes of people atop the hill flying kites, etc., so I left the tripod in the car and put on the wide-angle lens. Coming around the hill and my first view of the lake I was confronted with dozens and dozens of sail boats sailing mostly counter clockwise in a big circle around the lake. I had forgotten it was another "Duck Dodge" Tuesday in Seattle, an annual summer sailing event. Thank goodness for VR this was taken hand held with a polarized 70-200mm f2.8 lens.
