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.

Yes, would be interesting to see the same shot from the early-90's . . looks very perfected here.

@Ronnie 2¢: I was sure I had some old photos from that earlier trip, but I cannot locate them <pout> Mike just found the album, so I'll have to do some scanning. ;D

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

As Ronnie says it would have been fascinating to compare

@Doug: I agree ... if I could find those old hard-copy prints. ;D
Hey ... Mike just found them so I'll have to do some scanning.

I really like the composition Judy, the clarity is superb.... it really shows the beauty of those palms, the sky and all. This could be a post card image, it's so beautiful... the colors and detail are a delight!

@Carol: Ohh, you are so kind with your words, Carol ... I too, was pleased with the view I had quickly captured before heading back to the ship.

@tyan: That it was! ;D

Sharon Pleasants from Monroe, Louisiana, United States

I like your framing on this one. The palm trees are lovely. I can just feel the breeze and smell that salt air.

20 Jul 2013 2:01am

@Sharon Pleasants: Although palm trees don't offer lots of shade, the bits they do are delightful, and the fronds move in the slightest breeze, fanning you (sort of) in the process. ;D

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Lovely view of that floating city.

20 Jul 2013 9:38am

@Curly: Thanks, Curly.
