Lido Deck

[Cruise Series]
Jan. 27, 2012 - Although you wouldn't know it by the lack of people in this shot, Lido Deck is the place to be for those who want the more party-like atmosphere. Karen and I actually spent very little time in this part of the ship. :-))

On this particular night, it was pretty chilly due to a frontal passage and the boat was rocking enough for seasickness bags to placed in strategic locations around the ship, so we had Lido Deck mostly to ourselves. :-)

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.

Great night shot.
I really feel for those who suffer seasickness when it gets like that, but I become like a little by again and love to watch the boat rocking and the waves, my other half thinks I have a screw loose !!

The longer exposure gives a very eerie mood to the lights and colours as we wonder when the party will start!

Great image so electric and bright against the black (weather challenged) night. I loved the rocky weather shipboard, fortunately I had good sea legs. What a fantastic ship that is. I can imagine it peopled.

The lack of crowding makes for a superior view of this very lively looking section of the super ship. Excellent nighttime results with your shooting, too !
