...on our way 'home' to the ship!

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.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

This is so very beautiful Judy. We tend to put together a photobook of some of the best shots of our cruises and if I had taken this one it would have no competition for the front cover

@Doug: Oh Doug, thank you ... but we know it isn't a competition. It wasn't until Mike saw this on the computer screen that he understood my contortionist-ic position on the tender! <grin>

Aubélia from Kortrijk, Belgium

The lighting is wonderful. Have a nice day.

Lovely silhouette with the sunburst.

18 Jul 2013 7:31am

@Lai Chan See: Thank you, Chan See ... I couldn't get high enough to get the sun higher for a better sunburst, but I'll not complain. ;D

Carol from Leamington, Canada

I have been sitting here just staring at this photo and my eyes are pleased with such a gorgeous visual.... you have captured the perfect moment of "Gee, I wish I had taken that photo!"..... that's pretty cool how the sun is tucked snuggly under her arm. The weather here is still hot, humid and storm warning alerts.... my youngest & fmly will be here next week, I hope it changes. :)

18 Jul 2013 7:46pm

@Carol: Gee, Carol, you're causing me to blush. I wanted to get higher to make the sun smaller and the sunburst tighter, but I'll not complain. She never knew I took this, but other passengers wondered what the 'heck' I was doing. ;D Hoping your weather will cool down for your family visit! xo

Sharon Pleasants from Monroe, Louisiana, United States

Superb shot! The gull, her hair blowing in the breeze, the light on the water, the perfect capture of the last of the sun's rays, the light on the water. This is the best of your series! Just beautiful, Judy.

19 Jul 2013 1:31am

@Sharon Pleasants: For me, this was definitely a 'God thing' ... all the wishing in the world couldn't have presented this moment in time. Thank you, Sharon.
