A boat and a helipad on another boat? I'm just guessing, but whatever it is, it's interesting and so colorful! Happy Sky Watching!

This is an interesting shot. I love the lighting on it. I'm wondering if the sun was about to go down...Great choice for SWF! Hi from Cal.

So this great ship couldn't be saved? Is it already gone? I felt so sad reading your postings. a beautiful ship towering in a blue sky. MB

Thanks a lot, guys, you are great with your comments and make my day...

MB: No.. in spite of all efforts... Now, to be saved, we would need lots of cash, which unfortunatelly I don't have. Governments have, though. But they don't care for the People, let alone Ships...

Caro Amigo,
Lamentável! Vivemos uma época de luxúria em que dá para destruir navios a qualquer preço. Nunca acreditei no projecto para o Porto de Hamburgo do "Maxim Gorkiy", mas enquanto havia vida haveria esperança. O dinheiro fala sempre mais alto ...

Interesting photo! I'm so sorry to hear about the ship's death. Good to have captured it on film.

Our modern 'throw away' society ha lost all sense of perspective. Another sad inditement!
Lovely photo but sad, sad tale.
