Thank you for your kind words - it was indeed a rather magical day on the water
Gordon - I can't trust my eyes to perfectly level it and I must just be a naturally crooked fellow. Fortunately, Thomas' reminded me of this line-drawing feature and I remembered that this is also in ACDSee. So much easier..thanx Thomas!
Khol - I have travelled Greece a couple of times, but never made it to Santorini. Paros, Ios, Samos..so many fantastic islands in the Aegean and all with impressive sunsets. That was back in my 35mm film days. I'd go there again for the souvlaki, ouzo, retsina and sunsets!! lol!
Jake - very interesting workaround. I'm going to have to look into that one..perhaps attach a single small LED that I can turn on in the dark. That's very clever.
hehe patti..I ain't got none of them pretty cowboys here, and the cowboys - back when I lived in Southern Alberta - weren't nearly the snappy dressers your friends are! So I gotta make do with gulls and water, as you know
Speaking of water - Gerry Point Park allows you to get really close to where the big ships have to go through some narrows. Can be interesting
What you can't see is me nearly soiling my pants as the wake of that big mother hit the rocks I were standing on. I had completely forgot and I was tracking the freighter. Suddenly I heard the water crashing onto the rocks I was standing on. Let's not delve too deep into my humiliation - suffice it to say that 200000 billion-trillion cubic tonnes of a ship creates quite a wake and that my camera is safe....
That's the same ship you can see in the horizon in the second shot, above. btw.
