This photo was taken during the Westward Cup on the waters of the Solent in Hampshire. The contrast has been altered a little for maximum impact from the sky, but here the distortion from the fish eye lens seems to work in favour of the image for once. I hope you enjoy the shot of this beautiful craft.
