Cruise Ship Colors Paint the Dawn Waters

Managed to catch this one coming in to port just as the sun was rising. Colors on the water! K.L. © 2014

An early morning capture of a cruise ship coming in to port. I’ve been seeing and shooting a number of ‘firsts’ lately. First the cruise ship materializing from under the Golden Gate Bridge in an earlier post, to this beauty. While this isn’t the first time I’ve watched a cruise ship rolling across still waters on it’s way to docking, it is the first time I’ve seen it so early in the morning.

I love the quiet, the sense of something so large effortlessly gliding across the surface of a harbor as though gravity and physics meant nothing. It’s a sight to behold for sure and watching those colors moving with the water adds to the  ‘surreal- ality’ of the event.

I say it often here on this blog: I love and have always loved the water and boats. If I didn’t have a camera the morning I took this picture I still would have stopped to watch the proceedings. There’s magic in water, seas, and oceans. I feel it every time I’m near bodies of water.

I hope the people awake on board  this cruise ship as she began docking procedure made time to come out to the railing and enjoy the sight as much as I did!
