Photos Featured on Van Der Wal Site

I'm excited to announce that 5 photos of mine have been featured on internationally recognized nautical photographer Onne Van Der Wal's website! Click here to view. My photos are numbers 34 to 38. Clicking next above each photo will advance you through the series. Please spend a moment checking out these photos and take at look at Onne's while you are there. His photo's are truly terrific.
Over the summer, I attended a workshop on the water with Onne. We spent approximately 5 hours in Newport Harbor/Narragansett Bay on a 50' converted lobster boat (M/V Gansett) shooting 12 metre sailboats, lighthouses, and other great subjects. I had a great time and learned a whole lot.

I highly recommend attending one of his future workshops. Thanks to Onne, Kristin, Kelly and the rest of the crew for putting it together. More info on Onne and future workshops can be found
