Photographer's Note

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.
Enjoy it.

Have a good Sunday to all TE members.
