On each of our cruises, the staterooms that Michael chose for us have gotten better and better. On this our 3rd cruise and 2nd to Bermuda he absolutely out did himself. This suite was in the front of the ship right under the bridge (we weren't allowed to turn on the balcony lights at night at sea because of the vision problems it would create for the crew on the bridge).
I took immediate advantage of the views as we left NY harbor, but the shot I wanted of Michael as we sailed under the Verrazano bridge got spoiled, because he had his eyes closed in both shots. Then the group shot I had planned of about 8 or 10 of us as we steamed into port as we arrived at Bermuda yesterday morning was ruined by rain and the ungodly wind created by having a balcony that was located at the very front of the ship durning any wind, it nearly blew all of us back into the hallway!
But now anchored in the harbor with no wind to contend with, I got up before sunrise and set up my camera on my tripod, so I could capture the dawn lighting the harbor with rich beautiful colors. I know this is the kind of shot Michael was hoping I'd capture when he asked me to join everyone on this trip.
