Sail traiing.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 27 March 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I'm afraid that right now I only have some older archive pictures to show, simply because the number and frequency of hospital appointments for Mrs. Curly mount up.
This is a picture taken from the Mill Dam in South Shields showing teenagers undergoing sail training in the middle of the River Tyne.
I haven't shot a new scene for a number of weeks.

FUJIFILM FinePix F550EXR 1/420 second F/6.0 ISO 100 34 mm
