Gig team and reflections

Looking down on a gig team practicing on Pont Pill in the Fowey estuary
25/10/2009
I was on the Hall Walk, walking back towards Bodinnick after photographing the upper part of Pont Pill creek when this gig came into view. Gig racing is popular in the Fowey estuary and this team was practicing.

I waited for the boat to move into an area of the creek where the sun was reflected nicely from the water. Fortunately the boat turned at the right moment and I managed to capture it as the team rowed at an angle across the frame.
