I noticed this sailboat on Lake Coeur d' Alene and liked its isolation with no other boats around. The cloud cover had an ominous feel too. The mood seemed worth capturing if I could. Here is the result.

One lonely boat makes a very nice show of the presence of man on this peaceful seascape. The mostly gray-shades sky really make the sail stand out.

Great shot, I like the hint of light shining through the small break in the clouds as if to illuminate the sailboat...lovely!
