I like the yellow stars on their boat.

I would not have thought the row boats would be pulled out into the open water. But now that I think about it, all those oars would probably connect with other boats, bridges, buoys, etc. Very interesting!

That arch just frames it perfectly.

Looks like a very pleasant afternoon.

I would be interested to see them row along.

Nicely captured. I like the colors/ lines in the water and the way you composed these images.

I love this series of images through the arch VP.. I have a weakness for arches AND nautical scenes, so to me this is a double bonus..

What a beautiful set of images VP.

I like the way the colors are reflected in the water.

So that's how they do it. Nice photos.

I like the photos with the arch, and I like the name of the support team :)

It looks as if no one is paying much attention to the tow line or the relation between the two boats. Will that ore sticking out on the port side make it through the arch? Interesting.

A great POV, no doubt about it.
