The day was overcast in the early morning; after the skippers had prepared their boats, there was a lull in the action under cool gray skies. The snow and ice on the lake created the perfect backdrop for this high-key approach to the white sails and handsome wood tones of the boats. Of course, anytime there's a break in the action, the guys find themselves talking about--you guessed it--iceboats!
This image is is produced on a 24 by 17 inch sheet; the giclee image itself on the print is 21 by 14 inches at 150 dots per inch, leaving a 1.5-inch border for easy framing and matting. It is printed from a 3150 by 2100 pixel, 18.9 megabyte master file.
This detail shows the texture of the image, which plays off the high-key effect of the light tones in the image to create a look almost as though seen through a terra-cotta filter--if there could be such a thing. One might also imagine it as painted on an irregular tile surface.
