Wow. I really like such shots taken early at the morning far being far away from the typical tourist shot. I love the sea and am having a one week holiday at a small island pretty soon :-)

@sherri: Thanks, Sherri. This is one of those full-color images that can deceive the eye.
Very good. The fog gives it the magic atmosphere. Good job!

great shot. they seem like ghost ships.

Beautiful and nice atmosphere !

Beautiful still water and the perfect amount of fog...Did you have to wait for the sun to rise to a certain point to thin the fog and give the right visibility?

@Eric Fry: Greetings, Eric - thanks. This was an extraordinary morning. It was very chill and the dew point was staying right around the air temperature such that the fog would form and dissipate and then re-form for hours. I started shooting around six am and this image was shot after 9 am. It was a photographer's dream and I got a number of memorable photographs during that time.
You have really captured the atmosphere of a misty morning at the harbor! wonderful shot!

I can smell the salt in the air, Stephen ... you've captured an extraordinary mood with this image ... beautiful!
21 Jul 2008 10:31pm
This is magnificent! Great composition and atmosphere...
22 Jul 2008 2:21am
What a brilliantly atmospheric shot.

A calm and rather cinematic mood in this one, Stephen. I can almost see Bogey sticking his unshaven mug out of one of the port holes.
22 Jul 2008 2:49am
@Michael Skorulski: Well, the Bogey insertion is one I hadn't considered. That's funny... It is good to hear from you again, Michael. Thanks.
very nice - you definitely feel like you're there!

Beautiful composition, Stephen. Great perspective and I love the mist it enhances the serene setting here.
23 Jul 2008 2:33am
Beautiful light. I like the composition.

So incredibly moody, I've no words....I love it!
