Weekly Photo Challenge – Launch

There were a number of launches (boats) in the marina when I visited, all being prepared for the winter.

I wonder if I could run so hard down the walkway that I will be able to “launch” myself across the gap and land on the ‘launch’ the other side?  Ummm.

  1. haha I’m normally one to say Follow your Instincts, but I don’t think that would be wise on this occasion. Great photo 🙂

    I love it! I love boats and had considered a boat-related picture. Yours is better than any boat photos I have. I’d encourage you to try to launch yourself, except I recommend doing it not with that camera in hand 😉

      Hey Hey! I think that this photo challenge, and my own 365 challenge for 2012 is a big launching pad for me and my photography. Looking forward to this year, and growing in a new skill/talent. Thanks for the encouragement Jane.

    I like your photo, but we have a boat and this time of year, getting ready to take the boat out of the water, I would have called it a “pull” with the “launch” taking place in the spring when the boats go back in the water. Btw, we can hardly wait until spring to launch our boat again and enjoy sailing on the Chesapeake Bay!

      I have been so surprised by the response to this photograph. I didn’t know that it would cause so many comments. I am not a boat person but can appreciate them; their shapes; their lines; their personalities.
      Enjoy your boat/launch/craft. May you have many hours of pleasure.
      Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. It is very much appreciated.

    What I appreciate about this picture is that it is near impossible to tell which season it is! When I first saw it, though I knew you had just taken the picture, I momentarily allowed myself to drift back to summer memories…

      Hi Susan
      Thank you for the comments. I enjoyed being down at the marina. The one thing that you can’t get in the photo is the sounds! There is something rather settling about hearing the saillines (I hope that’s what they are called – I’m not nautical!) banging against the masts in the gentle breeze.

  11. All things are possible .. you just have to try. Perhaps if you used a towel like
    a superman cape you might actually reach. LOLOL .. I have pix’s similar to your
    from a marina where I live. You pix has wonderful clarity.
