  1. how pretty. love the 2nd shot.

  2. I love these beautiful photos!

  3. That's a very busy port. I see that sometimes you are up very early in the morning.

  4. Your images are amazing, John, thanks for sharing these very nice views.
    Many greetings from Turin, have a pleasant weekend!

  5. A lot of activity, I suspect constantly. The days are so long right now that even the early arrivals are visible. And the late ones, too. Our days are more than sixteen hours long right now! :-)

  9. Like the morning shots you took of the harbour & ship coming in.

  10. Neat to see the sails! I imagine it would be fun sailing! Ever since I was a little girl, my mom has had a painting of two girls by a lake with a sailboat in the background; it looks very peaceful.
