Round Block Island: Sun, Sea & Sky

May 30, 2016

More images from the 2016 Block Island Race. The entire time was a photo op, and after taking 200 images in only the first couple hours I was reminded of Volvo Ocean Race OBR Amory Ross’s advice: Don’t Overshoot.

Easier said than done, but after sifting through my entire SD card of 1,200 photos and videos, it’s a practice I have to spend more time mastering. I think it was because it was such a short race (by offshore racing standards) that I didn’t want to miss anything. For longer races like the VOR, there will always be another sunrise or sunset if you miss today’s. But for the 30-hour RBI, they don’t repeat.

I created a collection of the best sun, sea and sky images, including the first one which, quite frankly, I heart!
