Drift Away

Drift Away – River Orwell

This photograph was taken on the River Orwell during a very calm Pin Mill Smack Race. Not so much a race more of a procession of lovely old boats making their way very slowly from Pin Mill to the harbour at Harwich. These conditions are a yachting photographer’s worst nightmare as they put pay to the more┬ádramatic images of healing yachts and taught sails. However there is something very tranquil about this image which I love and which sums up what it is like to while away a few hours just drifting downstream. Magical!
