Title: Cruise Liner send off in style.
Post by: Valvebounce on March 08, 2018, 07:49:51 PM
Hi Folks.
While waiting for a car ferry home we went in to the Mayflower Park in Southampton for an ice cream and got to accidentally witness this sendoff.
It is the Ovation of the Seas and I think it was the VIP tour. It is a shame that the modern liners have none of the class or style of the older ships and look more like a tower block fell over! :-\

I couldn’t find another thread for liners, if there is one I will happily move this post, if not feel free to add to it if you have anything cruise related, river, lake or whatever you have.

Cheers, Graham.

Queen Mary 2 quietly enters Sydney at Harbour 5:30am today. Hand held on a boldard 0.8s f4.0 iso640 with my point and click SonyRX100 (sorry, this is my walkabout camera, I had left my 6D at home).

For some reason this ship makes me think immediately of 'The Poseidon Adventure' !   ;D

Hi jwilton.
Very nice shots, thank you for joining in, I have used a bollard as a tripod before, it is still difficult not to wobble around on the rounded top, I think you did well.
Just passing or we’re you working on the dock or awaiting her arrival just to get a shot?

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Sporgon.
Hmm, I’m not sure why it would bring The Poseidon Adventure to mind! :) ‘72 original or ‘05 remake? I have only seen the original.
Thanks for the compliment.

Cheers, Graham.

I particularly like the first shot. All the elements come together to make it a great picture. I'm not sure that it would have been better with another camera.... yes, you might have gotten it a bit sharper, or you could have shot HDR to get more range, but you would have lost the look.... And besides, the moment would have been gone.

Title: Paddlewheeler on the Columbia River
Post by: drmikeinpdx on March 09, 2018, 11:50:08 AM
This was taken last Fall in the Columbia River Gorge.  We had some big wildfires and I had hiked up Beacon Rock to see if I could get some photos of the fire damage across the river on the Oregon side.  i liked the ominous lighting.

There are three paddle wheel cruise vessels on the river that I know of.  I call them small, medium and large.  This is the medium size one.

Camera:  Canon 77D

Hi Sporgon.
Oops, didn’t think of that, I was looking for physical similarities of the vessels which I couldn’t really find.  ::)

Cheers, Graham.

The Fram..... carrying the name of a famous ship.... I understand the original is now in a museum.... I bet this one is a lot more comfortable 😀

Thank you Graham, This is just under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and there a many bollards to choose from, they are not all the same on the top.
I swim every morning at a pool under the Bridge and take my camera with me just in case.

Cheers, John

The combination of colorful lights looks perfect with the shot!
Totally Loved it!

Not sure what the liners were, taken while waiting for a bonfire display in 2015. From possibly the very same spot Graham stood to take his in the first post!

Hi Matthew.
Nice shot, if you know the Mayflower Park, I was roughly where the road turns away from the water to leave, may have been slightly more towards the ice cream van!  :) mmmmm ice cream!  :)

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks :) Not quite the same place then, I was about halfway along the pier where the RedJet departs from. Always a great choice to capture fireworks with reflections over the water :)

Sounds like you were quite close to visiting the island then! Do you ever come over here?

I have been over a few times over the years, we usually go view the Lymington Ferry though. Can't resist a trip to the Needles.

Hi Matthew.
Yes the Needles are good, but the battery, a longish walk or an expensive bus ride (no public vehicular access) above the Needles is much more interesting especially when you get to the rocket engine range!

Cheers, Graham.
