...from our balcony, listening to the water splashing away from the hull.
That 'rig' that's hanging at the top of the image is for washing windows of the Oceanview Cafe.
It rides along a rail and is used daily.
It could not have been a prettier day as we sailed toward Grand Cayman Island.
Happy Silly Tuesday everyone, but this was *serious* pleasure!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Nice use of the railing to lead the eye deep into this shot! Hapyy ST Judy! ;-)

2 Apr 2013 1:13pm

@Eric Cousineau: Thank you, Eric.

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Very good compositional dynamics to make us feel as though we are the ones standing there.

2 Apr 2013 2:09pm

@Rick: Glad you could put yourself into my shoes. ;D

don from Spokane, United States

A striking picture for its near/far quality. I like the information of the picture in a vertical format.

2 Apr 2013 3:02pm

@don: Thanks, Don.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I like the point of view. I can almost hear the slapping of the water.

2 Apr 2013 5:27pm

@Ruthiebear: Glad you can "almost" hear the water. ;D

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

An excellent PoV looking down the railing here. I love how well the whitecaps stand out on the water and the height you've given this composition.

2 Apr 2013 6:29pm

@Steven: Thank you, Steven.

Jeff from Pembroke Dock, United Kingdom

Now thats one dead straight horizon, smashing shot. ;>)

@Carol: Thank you, Carol. Shots like this take me right back. ;D

Kate from EXETER, United Kingdom

What a great POV, I can hear the engines and ocean ... wonderful pleasure Happy ST

2 Apr 2013 8:56pm

@Kate: Thank you, but if you can hear the engines, you must have a magical stethoscope, as we couldn't hear it, even when standing on the stern above it. ;D

Abena from Illinois, United States

Ohh, gorgeous! somewhere out in the open deep blue sea ! It's beautiful to look at and I can almost feel the airy, fresh, feel...great way to sped some relaxing time ;D

@Abena: I'm happy you got the feeling from out there; it was truly glorious.

intéressant cadrage

Joyce from Montana, United States

super shot at this angle. I can hear the rush of the sea I swear. What is the tonnage of this ship? Just curious. I was on a 45,000 ton liner a long time ago. I am guessing this one is twice that?

3 Apr 2013 1:16pm

@Joyce: I had to look it up, Joyce ... it is 122,000 tons, nearly 3x.

franz from Baden, Austria

again, i'm fascinated with the dimensions of this ship. you show them so well in your pictures, judy, like tower block floating on the sea ...

3 Apr 2013 7:12pm

@franz: Thanks so much, Franz ... so many photo ops! ;D

Trina from Pennsylvania, United States

Great point of view! Makes me wish I was standing there enjoying the view!

4 Apr 2013 1:52am

@Trina: Thanks, Trina.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Very special treatment for any anxieties: look at the frothing waters and listen to the music of the waves! But....I don't know if I could get rid of my anxieties aboard a ship (?!)

6 Apr 2013 10:20am

@Japanalia: You hardly know you're on the water when in the interior of the ship. I think you'd be surprise regarding "anxieties". ;D
