or how to steering a boat.Dedicated to all TE members that have a boat and don't know how to use the steearing wheel.
During a day cruise for snokering at the Ras Muhammad National Park,during the return to the port,i saw this humorous snapshot with the captain to 'drive' the boat with his feet sitting conformable on his chair.
Have a good Sunday to all TE members.
Ras Muhammad National Park
Ras Mohammad (Arabic: رأس محمد literary Arabic Ra's Muħammad, colloquial Arabic Rās Moħammad) is a national park in Egypt at the southern extreme of the Sinai Peninsula, overlooking the Gulf of Suez on the west and the Gulf of Aqaba to the east.
Coral reef, of the fringing and hermatypic types, exist along the coast around Ras Mohammad close to the shoreline.More than 220 species of coral are found in the Ras Mohammad area, 125 of them soft coral. The coral reefs are located 50 to 100 cm below the sea surface, and they have a width of 30 to 50 m in most places. Though in some spots on the western coast, the coral reef is 8 to 9 km wide.
Yolanda coral reef in Ras Mohammed
Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef are popular areas of coral reef in the park for divers. Other coral reef sites include South Bereika, Marsa Ghozlani, Old Quay, and Shark Observatory.The wreckage of the SS Thistlegorm, located off the coast of Ras Mohammad, is a popular area for divers.
The area is home to more than 1000 species of fish, 40 species of star fish, 25 species of sea urchins, more than a 100 species of mollusc and 150 species of crustaceans. Among others, sea turtles, such as the green turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) appear regularly in Ras Mohammad.
On the Ras Mohammad peninsula, there are acacia trees and dum palms (Hyphaene thebaica) around the wadi mouths. Ephermal herbs and grasses also exist in Ras Muhammad.

Indeed, it is necessary to be an expert to lead a boat with its feet !!! It seems to me really cool this captain, an original photograph on this cruising. A soft and pleasant light to give a certain atmosphere to the image, well done Danos and thank you for the interesting informative note.
With all my friendships and excellent Sunday,

Très cool le capitaine, très habitué a la conduite de son bateau avec il semblerais avec les pieds, une pose relax avec l'air de la mer quoi demandé de mieux, il semble que je vois une partie de votre ombre sur le bateau :-), bonne gestion de la lumière en bon contraste avec le bleu de la mer et du ciel
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2010-12-05 3:38
nice capture. The captain of the ship is looking so serious in his job. Nice use of light and good DOF. Like also the contrasting colours. An excellent work. Tfs.
yeln (11516) 2010-12-05 4:15
videti je, da kapitan nima tekega dela in uiva v senci pod streho svoje barke. lep POV in lepe barve. tudi vas se vidi v levem spodnjem kotu, torj avtoportret. bravo!! TFS!
lep dan, vojko
rodgerg (55767) 2010-12-05 4:30
Unusual but very efficeince POV and too framing well selcetd. Contrast well collected and good exposition of the white colors. Greta depht too with the large prospect open to the banks in the BG.
ikeharel (69765) 2010-12-05 5:30
Leg steering is a fantastic way to impress the tourist and yet taking it easy on job...my friend Danos.
white boat on red sea ( actualy blue...) fine profile on Captain.
Have a nice week ahead
pierrefonds (65244) 2010-12-05 7:36
You have captured well the action of the captain using is feet to steer the boat. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the interior of the boat. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Il est vraiment cool ce capitaine ! C'est ce que l'on appelle une posture décontractée !
L'image est bien vue et très bien présentée.
Félicitations pour l'originalité.
vasilpro (41271) 2010-12-05 14:33
Γεια σου Δάνο,
Αστεία σκηνή, εργασία και χαλάρωση ότι το πιο ιδανικό, ελπίζω να αντιδρά κατάλληλα ο καπετάνιος στη φουρτούνα!
Καλή σου βδομάδα, Βασίλης.

simpatico omaggio all'esperto capitano alla guida dello scafo.
Buona la luce con il mare e la costa di fondo,
kordinator (20511) 2010-12-06 1:25
Very interesting composition.
nice ciontrast of the frontal cabin and the blue sea.
Nice use of light and good DOF.
Excellent contrasting colors.
josepmarin (58357) 2010-12-06 3:11
Well seen this humorous scene, and caught well with your camera.
The position of the captain of the boat, steering the wheel with his feet, while it is sat comfortably in his chair, is simply amazing.
I like how you offer us this funny moment, in a well executed photo.
Nice work, my friend.
Bluejeans (64251) 2010-12-06 10:33

Um abraço Gonçalo

Odlican tekst ...
Kapetan uziva zavaljen u stolicu i upravlja nogama kormilo.
Vrlo interesantno mesto sa otvorenom kabinom kapetana, dobar trenutak i ostrina snimka, lepa fotografija.
Excellent text ...
Captain enjoys reclining in a chair and kicked the rudder control.
Very interesting place with an open cabin captain, a good time recording and sharpness, beautiful photos.
boa (7375) 2010-12-06 12:34
yes i really like his laid back style. He looks like there are no problems in the world :) I guess your snorkeling cruise was a very nice experience, with crystal clear water and a lot of colorful fishes ?
Fine and humorous shot, Tfs !
Have a nice evening.
adramad (44798) 2010-12-06 12:43
A curious and original picture, obviously the captain must also know how to wear the boat that even her feet can carry him.
Thanks for providing such a nice image, good light and beautiful colors.
delpeoples (57278) 2010-12-06 13:29
Kalimera dear Danos
Heheheh, I like how he steers the wheel, this frees up his hands for eating! I do not have a boat, but if I did, this would be the way I'd steer it.
Excellent and unique POV, the predominance of white and blue contrast well and are very striking.
Great job, TFS and have a beautiful evening
ciakgiak (30429) 2010-12-06 14:29
c'è bisogno di vedere immagini originali e nuove, come nel caso di questa bellissima composizione, in cui la postura del capitano ed il piccolo mondo che lo circonda sono il fulcro di una splendida composizione. Complimenti.
Un caro abbraccio
baddori (20121) 2010-12-06 15:05
A captain's driving patterns of freshwater.
... Of course near the shore ....
Born and photos they marry ....
Humor ... so good ....
But at sea ....
Urs (14082) 2010-12-06 17:46
What a nice candid shot of the captain, he really must not have sensed your presence. Good vivid color hues and high sharpness. Well done.
siolaw (38292) 2010-12-07 0:33
Geia sou Danos,
A cool pilot and a funny way to hold the steering wheel! You could also have called him so he would look at you!
Longroute (19396) 2010-12-07 2:15
you exploited well the sight and shape of this cockpit, with the captain positioned in the right place at right and looking towards the horizon. His figure is a nice focal point which contrasts with the white of the boat and lead our eyes to see what he's seeing. Never seen a pilot steering with his feet!
But he's a small man and has the seat well high to be able to see over the wind-shield so this is the only way to steer!
Actually this shows that the boat is not well built...
A pretty and interesting photo.
Have a nice day,
s_lush (16134) 2010-12-07 2:25
This is equally humorous, informative, cognitive and very well made shot. The knowledge that it gives may be used by anyone. It was a very good idea to capture such an interesting scene. It has been realized perfectly well. Excellent job!
anokutan (15097) 2010-12-07 5:55
Nice capture. The captain of the ship is looking so serious in his job.Like also the contrasting colours. An excellent work.
Giorgio (11279) 2010-12-07 6:59
- Sympathetic ambience with this captain Danos ;o) fun atmosphere also and the feel good adventure, well done!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2010-12-07 9:29
The photograph is superb. The captain is not a violent man, and especially not with work. The photograph is amusing, quality is higher. Cheer.
Have a good evening
AKITA (15125) 2010-12-07 16:50
this white pilot space looks so joyful and fantastic,
surrounding blue ocean and dark square glasses are well contrasted with white color,
maybe the cruse is very cheerful, the sea wind is comfortable,
thank you for your excellent shot,
gildasjan (43442) 2010-12-08 1:26
Belle prise de vue de cette embarcation.L'image est parfaitement exposée.
mkamionka (35788) 2010-12-08 8:10
so this is the place where recently the sharks attack tourists?
But I see your photo is from earlier time.
Funny capture indeed,
raszid62 (18515) 2010-12-08 10:46
Πολύ δροσερό σκηνικό γενικής χρήσης. Ο καπετάνιος, σαν ένα μικρό παιδί, κουνώντας τα κοντά πόδια κάθεται στη μεγάλη καρέκλα. Πολύ καλή ποιότητα.
yedirenk (11244) 2010-12-10 6:58
Hi dear Danos,
what a wonderful peaceful and calm ambiance..a very nice moment..lovely boat,white color and simple details are eye catcher.very natural presentation.TFS
jafadabret (56501) 2010-12-20 9:18
C'est bien volontiers que nous prenons place dans ce superbe bateau qui vogue sur la Mer Rouge. J'aime le graphisme et les couleurs où dominent le bleu et le blanc.
geoant68 (331) 2011-03-20 0:34
ο καπετάνιος πρέπει να είανι πολύ έμπειρος για να οδηγεί το σκάφος του με τα πόδια.Οι λεπτομέρειες και τα χρώματα είναι εξαιρετικά.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-09-23 20:51
Δάνο, ωραίος ο καπετάνιος, τα αφήνει όλα στον αυτόματο και πάει μόνο του..σε ενα τέτοιο σκαφάκι ημουνα το ΣΚ και πέρασα ονειρο..
Να σου πώ και κάτι για τήν χθεσινη μου φωτογραφια, τα έκανα θάλασσα με το φορμάτ και βγήκε τεράστια στα 1600...μετα το είδα και γέλαγα ασταμάτητα..πές κι εσυ κάτι, δεν βοηθάς...θα γίνω ρεζίλι εδώ πέρα..
αντε καλημέρα σήμερα υπόσχομαι να προσέξω
jmdias (63350) 2014-10-09 17:21
I liked the framing catching well the personage and the shapes of the boat and its details, the touch of humor of the personage is very interesting too.
