Sail Away...

Travis Frank

Sometimes a picture can jump out of nowhere.  The other day I was cruising across the lake and as I looked over my shoulder I saw the sun setting over the horizon.  This is an every day occurance, but just at that moment my view was blocked by a sailboat waiting for a gust of wind.  Realizing that this was one of those picture perfect moments, I hit the breaks on the Ranger and turned the boat back around.  Finding that perfect spot once again, I stopped for a few quick pictures.  Like so often, timing is everything.  The second I finished taking the picture, the clouds engulfed the glowing ball of sunshine, and the photo op was over.  Luckily, I was there just in the nick of time.  I hope you enjoy it!
