Hacker-Craft Speedboat

This is a nice action shot of an antique, wooden speedboat.  This image was not planned in advance but I happened to be a passenger in another boat running with this 30 foot Hacker-Craft runabout in the St. Clair River.  The light was fading quickly in the late evening but the action was so exciting that I tried a few shots anyway.  This image captures the old, wooden boat just as it launches off the wake of the leading boat.  The light is soft and pleasant.
150mm lens, 1/1000 second at f/5.0, ISO 1250.
