Sailboat with Blue Spinnaker on the Gulf of Mexico, Naples, Florida
Flying its blue spinnaker, a sailboat draws across the waters of the inland shelf on the Gulf of Mexico seaward from Naples Florida. Running downwind the boat seems bestilled, barely cutting a wake across the seascape photograph. In truth, the potential of the power of the wind is seen as the sail arches forward. The curved shape of the kite is echoed by the bird across the frame. The two feel connected by the air of which they are creatures. The connection is enhanced as they form the long side of an obtuse triangle with a motorboat as the third vertex. The triangle a contrast to the bands of sea and sky as they march beck into the photograph.
