Docked Skiff

A docked skiff is seen just off the waters of the Rappahannock River as the evening light softened before sundown. The water was dead calm as I set up for the shot but that all changed during this long exposure as a speed boat whizzed by in the background. Notice the red line from the bow light and the ghost like image of the boat itself, which is barely visible.

The water remained calm in this exposure since the wake from the boat had not shown itself while the shutter was open.

Timing is everything. I really didn't want the passing boat involved in this but at least the shot was complete while some serenity remained. :-)

Thanks for visiting!
