it was a hot and humid evening, some friends a i were driving back from a long day at rehoboth beach, and i used the nav this time because i was not going to my house but somewhere else. the nav leads us to a place i heard of before but never been to. the cape may-lewes ferry. now i didn't see this coming. the ferry takes you to cape may new jersey. i don't want to go to jersey. i need to get back to montgomery county. as i ponder this, i notice this old looking ship and the sun was setting behind it. i ran over and got this shot. we got back in my car, turned around and when back the way we came. i pulled over and tried the nav again. don't you know it took us right back to the ferry again! i was beside myself and betrayed. Nevertheless, we finally escaped delaware.

    The right part of your shot is as from a movie… and if one would ask me on what board I'd prefer to take a cruise the answer is obvious, on the pretty of the two. Great shot Christopher.

    I really like how still and calm the photo feels, and especially how the flag seems to be captured in slow motion. Beautiful.
