A Magical View

When we lived in Mazatlán during the winter months, the view from the terrace both day and night was spectacular. Watching the cruise ships arrive in the morning and then depart at night, sitting in a chair either under the sun or enjoying the cool night air was very enjoyable.

I remember this shot or something very similar anyway. Great idea for today to show this enormous cruise liner against the night.

Nicely done Kate. You have such an interesting view from there. Throw in the boat and it adds a great subject for the shot.
