Do you know where it's heading?

I wouldn't fancy that kind of large scale transportation.

Superb commposition, Jim...the juxtaposition shows how huge those cruise ships really are! Nice lighting, too!

That is the chicken said...

The ancient world meets the modern...I like the way the funnel of the ship mirrors the colour of the fort.

Cruise ships do not interest me in the least - but I would love to spend an afternoon clambering over that fortress.
