I have always grown up near water and spent a lot of time on or near boats. Just recently, I discovered I really enjoy taking pictures of them. Floating in the water, dry-docked for a cleaning or tied up in the harbor. One thing I particularly enjoy is the sound of the wind whipping through all of the boats’ lines.
In Kinsale, Ireland, the place my wife and I stayed was right near the water, so walking to or from town included a nice stroll along the harbor filled with boats. As the sun was setting and the air was getting cooler, the wind all-but-died. During our entire stay, I don’t think I saw the water get this calm again.
