Gigs off Northney

I love it when you spot a picture you didn't know you had, hidden in full sight in a shot of a large amount of sky and sea with a couple of tiny boats in the middle. Zoom in, straighten, crop creatively and something nice suddenly pops out.
This shot was taken as I was rowing Kittiwake around off Langstone on the day the gigs were renamed. It didn't look much on the screen of thumbnails, but zooming in revealed a study in sterns, with splashing.
The magic of digital photography on websites is that whereas this shot will probably make a rather uninspiring photo print, on screen it looks great despite reducing the resolution horribly to make sure it loads reasonably quickly.
So I used it for the masthead of the Langstone Cutters Gig Club website.
