Back to sea for this photo. Rodrigues is an island 650 km east of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. That’s part of “Nellie” (the tall ship Lord Nelson) on the right.
This is Queen Mary 2 at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Sydney, with quite a moody sunset going on in the background plus a sliver of moon. The glowing purple ball on the ship houses various electronic thingies.
“Watery” not online because it’s at sea, but because there’s a wavering, watercolour look to this photo. This is off the coast of Belgium, shot on a morning watch from the tall ship ‘Tenacious’ in 2006.

I wouldn’t want you to get the impression that every “sunrise” at sea is like the one in yesterday’s post! This is in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, also taken while sailing on ‘Lord Nelson’.
One for Becky, who wants to see the amazing Indian Ocean sunrises. 🙂 The tall ship is ‘Lord Nelson’.
Not really a sunrise, as the sun’s a bit high. It irks me that the horizon and line of the boat’s rail are not parallel!
Becky is back with another month of square challenges. 🙂 This time it’s skies for December — and I’m only a couple days late joining, which for me is remarkable. I’m kicking off with a stunner (if I say so myself): sunrise over the island of Mauritius, taken in 2013 while sailing across the Indian Ocean from South Africa to India on the tall ship ‘Lord Nelson’.
Be prepared for a lot of photos with sky and ocean, though I’ll try to throw in some non-sailing ones too!
