San Diego -- January 16 - 22, 2005
This voyage is rated 5 mainsails out of 5 on the Voyage Mainsail-o-meter.
Note how the photographer was tilting the camera in an effort to compensate for the extreme angle of heel to which she was being subjected. Unfortunately, as can be seen by the tilt of the horizon, this can cause some confusion in the eyes of the viewer, and makes it appear that the earth was tilted in some alarming fashion and the boat was heeled over less than it really was. In an effort to correct this problem, we ask that you tilt your monitor 14 degrees to the left.
Or, using the magic of digital imaging technology, the image can be rotated to compensate. But now it's a bit confusing due to the angle of the image.
Perhaps the best solution is to just grab a circle out of the middle of the image and rotate it - then there are no offensive non-level, non-plumb edges to worry about. Plus, this method has the added benefit of being somewhat nautical since it can be viewed as a port-hole sort of thing.
