Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12: Lorient - In-Port Race Bretagne
Lens: DA*60-250 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Lorient, France 
Posted By: tcom, 07-03-2012, 04:48 AM


After having covered the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Lisbon, I wanted to do it again, but with a longer lens, and it just happened last weekend when I was attending the stopover of Lorient in France.

Here a few photos, all with K-5 and DA*60-250:












12 (DA*16-50)

A zodiac with two strong motors is pretty helpful as well...

Each of these shots is outstanding, Dominique. I know from experience that on-the-water photography is not easy. I especially like the composition, colors and POV of photo number 7.

Well done, as the zodiac isn't the smoothest ride, by far.
