About the shot :
This image is from the end of the fifth leg of the Volvo Ocean Race arriving into Maryland in near windless conditions. I selected this in particular for this year's competition because it is both reflective - appropriate for the disruption that we are living through and timeless - without any obvious technology that would date the scene. Many people, sailors or not can identify with the serenity this image offers. And yet it is from a hugely dynamic and exciting event. Stay safe and healthy - see you on the water again soon!
