A true sign of SUMMER is more activity around the port.

I like the scale given by the men in the foreground and the splashes of colour setting off the overall whiteness of the picture. Roll on the holidays, even if our "cruise" is only across the Channel.

Amazing photo. I agree with James it is wonderful to have the men in the image to get a sense of scale.

A familiar sight, the season here starts a little earlier, but this is the Mediterranean.

You do get some big cruise liners in your port. Nice shot.

Rob said...

The size of these cruise ships is difficult to comprehend.

Lots of cruise ships! Does the famous "mail boat" goes as far south as Stavanger?

Gunn said...

I guess you mean http://www.hurtigruten.no

Well, that is from BERGEN, but who knows it might start from Stavanger, but so fare BERGEN is the starting place.
One day I will take this fantastic trip!!:)

They are big! My parents were just on one for an Alaskan cruise and the Norovirus went through the ship and got them sick. I heard that's common with those ships. I like the lines and curves in this photo.

That is one gigantic ship! I've never been on a cruise but I bet it'd be fun to be in one.

Hi Gunn,

So that is a good idea...you know about my english.
Greetings from Berlin:-)

Nice pic, with the bold white shape over powering the two guys. Have a great summer, here in Mumbai we are glad that summer is over and the monsoons are here.
