I love ships, but get easily sea-sick.I wouldn't be aboard - even such a large one.

Nice catch!

That is one amazing surf out there. What a busy sea.

Thanks for stopping by.

wonderful photo--glad you're on board again! I know you've had your share of 'weather'--it kept Seattle bro-in-law away from family Christmas this year.
I've overheard the oldtimers around here say this is the worst winter they've seen in MN for a long time.
Happy new year--stay warm!

Great depiction, Raf. To me, the real power of that image is the stormbird on the right, as well as the soft-focus reeds in the foreground.

Great work.

PS: Glad you liked my Ray-Ban reflection shot of the Perth sky.

This is a great picture, One can feel the winds and the power of the waves in your Image.

Raf, thanks for your wonderful welcome back comments @ Lahore Daily. It is great to be back.

We would call that choppy, in other words hold on to your guts it's a rough crossing.

Have you ever been on a freighter? Those vessels are absolutely massive.

I'm glad I'm viewing this on my computer screen and not first-hand on the ship or even on the shore. Wonderful capture.

Great image! It's been very stormy here, as well. I love to watch the waves crash, but wouldn't want to navigate them.

Glad you are back to smooth sailing. We've been having some technical woes too (still working on it), so my web time is sporadic.

ThanX for the good wishes ~ a very happy New Year to you and yours!

The power of the ocean beats that of any vessel on its day, Raf. I like this photograph: the choppy white water tells so much.
