Queen Elizabeth

There's just enough time for a quick post tonight.

After a visit back home today, and one of mum's substantial lunches, I'm beat.

While in dock at La Palma, I spent a little time at the front of the boat, getting a few shots which I had been thinking about; the classic ship in perspective type of shots. While I was at it, I got out my telephoto and photographed these passengers alongside the ship, just to give the whole scene a sense of scale.

You honestly cannot appreciate the magnitude of these vessels until you see one. There are like floating cities.
