Can’t imagine what cities along the coast or river would be like if there is no water transport.
Always amazed at the sight of boats (of whatever kind) moving passengers and cargos so swiftly between destinations.
Here is my collection of photos of boats moving in scenic places and cities.
I like the contrast between the movements of the boats against the stationary background.
Dubrovnik is a city by the Adriatic; I like the view of lone boats against the beautiful background of the island fortress.
…………… or just the view of a small boat speeding out to the sea against a hillside of terracotta roof.
Caught this image of a jetfoil speeding along the Danube, the waves generated at the stern is quite a sight.
A boat passing by with the backdrop of New York City . . . . a tranquil moment which you can watch from the bench on Ellis Island.
The Star Ferry in Hong Kong is a main mode of passenger transport between Kowloon and the Island before the cross harbor tunnels were built. When time allows, I prefer travel on the ferry instead of crossing via tunnels.
Another ferry sailing along the harbor with the skyline of the HK island behind.
Water taxi speeding along the river with the temple as backdrop in Bangkok, Thailand.
Last, but not the least, boats in the Bosporus, Turkey against Istanbul’s skyline in sunset.
These photos lead me to the lyrics:
Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see
You’re the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass,
Sailing ships will pass you,
Sailing ships will pass you by…
