An early upload this morning as I'm soon off to hospital for a pre - assessment for an operation.

Taken at Cardiff bay on Saturday. There's a cafe above this. I've passed this many times before without taking an image and on this occasion the lighting was quite good. I waited for the small sailing boat to move from behind one of the supports.
It's not selective coloured or desaturated.

Strong graphics and a well placed boat, Ken. The red sail works particularly well. Best of luck with the pre-op stuff.

Now this is good, Ken. I love this type of imperfect symmetry, and the capture of the sailing boat is just the icing on the cake.

Hope all went OK at the hospital.
