Moored Yacht, Mallorca #1

Solitary yacht, moored at Cala Tuent, Mallorca

The story behind this image

Sometimes, the simplest of images can be the most evocative.

As far as composition and subject matter go, this photo of a moored yacht, just off the coast at Cala Tuent on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, is about as basic as a picture can be.

Yet when I look at this picture it's easy for me to imagine myself there, with the wind in my face and the freedom of the open sea beckoning.

Helping that imagined story is the way the yacht is placed in the bottom right hand third of the frame with its prow pointing towards the horizon, ready to set off on another adventure.
