Best Photo! (and a continued blog hiatus)


STAwards2015WinnerThank you to everyone who voted in the Sailing Today 2015 Awards! I’m honored to have had my image “Laughter Lines” win Best Cruising Photograph.  Although we couldn’t be at the acceptance ceremony, I enjoyed hearing ST magazine’s editor Sam’s words, that the picture showed “the lighter side of cruising life and the joys of quitting the beaten track, shot in the Teakerne Arm of British Columbia’s unfairly-named Desolation Sound.  Ellen is busy cruising the Arctic at the moment, so we’ve dispatched her award for collection at the North Pole.”

Apologies once again that the blog has been on hiatus for so long.  We both enjoyed our time in the Arctic and are now back at home.  Unfortunately the blog will stay paused for another couple of months due to commitments at home.  Thank you all for your patience—I promise the story and photos will resume eventually!Zipline
