10 out of 10!
Thank you. What did I win? 🙂
The photo says it all. Perfect WW !!! 😊
Thanks, Issy. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂
A picture says a thousand words! 🙂
In some cases, Jo. 🙂
Maybe there’s some artefacts to rescue in that wreckage 😉
It was only carrying a cargo of corn when it went aground, so nothing worth salvaging. 🙂
The wreck looks tragic.. but the picture.. wow what an amazing picture, love the contrasting colors in it 🙂 thanks for sharing!
Thank you. Yes, I too love these beautiful colours. 🙂
It’s my pleasure 🙂
great photo, Sylvia! love the color of the sea! 🙂
Thanks so much, Lola. 🙂
Goodness, glad the surfer was okay…and that wreck looks like some sort of alien craft! Beautiful colours in the photo 🙂 xx
Yes, you’re right, Sherri. The aliens have landed in Punta Cana. 😀
That wreck is definitely a rust-heap. It looks more like a disfigured sea monster reaching out of the water.
Absolutely, Sarah. It’s been there for about 35 years, but I’m sure the sea will eventually claim it.
Contrast in time. Perfect.
Thanks, Frank. 🙂
Schönes Foto wünsche dir glückliche Ostertage lieber Gruß und Umarmung Gislinde
Thank you so much, Gislinde. Happy Thursday to you. 🙂 xx
Yes, I didn’t think of it at the time. 😀
Came too late and at the same time not too late; ironic 🙂
Haha. Yes, very true. 🙂
The water looks so pristine!! Beautiful!
Thanks for visiting, Karren. Yes the colour of the ocean was really wonderful there. 🙂
Of course, as a yachtsman I have to get technical here … that ain’t no windsurfer, it is a capsized one-man sailing dinghy!
The other item is a priceless piece of modern art entitled, ‘Oops!’
Thanks so much for the correction. I wasn’t sure what it was. All I knew was that I was glad I wasn’t on it when it capsized. 😀
Such capsizes are just part of the game. An experienced dinghy sailor would have that up and going again inside a minute. Luff into the wind, climb on the centreboard, and heave on the edge!
I’d feel safe to go sailing with you any day, Col. 🙂
Decades of experience do help!
There is a lot to see on this photo and what a brilliant color has the see.
Thanks so much, Marylou. Glad you enjoyed the photo. 🙂
A photo of real contrasts!
Haha Yes, indeed. 🙂
This is an example of a photo that says so much!
Thanks, Christy. It is quite an unusual scene. 😉
a great contrast of vessels.. !
Thanks, Lisa. 🙂
I love the colour of the water!!
Yes, it was so unbelievably blue. 🙂
Love it! Fab juxtaposition of the two wrecks Sylvia.
Thanks, Madhu. It was a really lucky shot. 🙂
What a poignant capture Sylvia. Love the association of the two wrecks.
Thanks, Sue. Not often one gets two boat wrecks in one photo. 🙂
Great shot, Sylvia! I hope the windsurfer was okay.
Thanks, Jill. Yes I’m sure they were fine. 🙂
Way too late for the wreck for sure but wow the water’s so blue 🙂
Isn’t it just the bluest ocean ever? 🙂
VERY! makes me want to hop in for a swim 😀
at least the sea is a beautiful shade of blue!
None more beautiful, except maybe Bora Bora. 🙂
