I’ve intended to do something different with Gone Floatabout for a long time. I’ve wanted to make it into a photography site, showcasing the beauty of the natural world, rather than a blog site relating personal sailing stories, so now I’ve finally done it. I’ll still write posts, but they’ll focus more on specific photographs – of places or animals – than on voyaging. Clearly, our images are influenced by where we sail, but Gone Floatabout will really be much more about nature photography than sailing going forward.
You’ll see that I’ve entirely renovated the site to be a collection of galleries, organized by location. So far I’ve completed the first three galleries: Alaskan Land- and Seascapes, Alaskan Wildlife, and images from the Pacific Northwest (coastal British Columbia and Washington). I’ve also made a good start on the Birds gallery, though it’s pretty heavy on Alaska at the moment and I’d like to add birds from elsewhere as I go through our old (and new!) photos. I hope you enjoy the new site.
