Back to sea for this photo. Rodrigues is an island 650 km east of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. That’s part of “Nellie” (the tall ship Lord Nelson) on the right.
Becky is back with another month of square challenges. 🙂 This time it’s skies for December — and I’m only a couple days late joining, which for me is remarkable. I’m kicking off with a stunner (if I say so myself): sunrise over the island of Mauritius, taken in 2013 while sailing across the Indian Ocean from South Africa to India on the tall ship ‘Lord Nelson’.
Be prepared for a lot of photos with sky and ocean, though I’ll try to throw in some non-sailing ones too!
I had a marvellous time going through my travel photos to find ones to fit Ailsa’s travel theme of faces. Old memories came back and the travels seemed like yesterday. I’ve tried to choose faces with interesting expressions. The people in the feature image at top all look quite serious, despite this being the first official tasting during our three-day trip to the Champagne region.
India – Tordi Gar
Sailing – ‘Tenacious’ in the Atlantic
A couple of poor quality scans of old prints here, apologies! But I like how in both, the two people have different reactions to being photographed.
