i actually like the shape of this ship, although it is so rounded purely for looks, as i don't think there will be a lot of gain in aerodynamic performance.

The Wurlitzer certainly looks sharp Fred (F7) and the housing is not so attractive (F5 and F6), but it's a good start for our first intermediate travel goal.
The North hields f sh ma t seems busy but the cormorant parliament takes the cake.
One more Newcastle port view: the Dutch HNLMS de Ruyter, a Military Ops Actually HMS Diamond, D34, a Type 45 Destroyer (corrected by Heidifirst)

D4



Up to our next intermediate goal: Edinburgh

Indeed, aerodynamics are not all that important while moving at a little over 30 km/hour, hydrodynamics and the hull shape are probably much more important to reduce resistance.

p11: Here's another detail from the MS City of Rotterdam, which seems to be registered in Panama

Careful with the ship names: the pictured ship is MS City of Rotterdam. There happens to be also MS Rotterdam, but it is a cruise ship in Holland America Lines' fleet and its port of registry is actually Rotterdam.

We drove to Edinburgh, more precisely to the Forth Bridge crossing the Firth of Forth. It consists of an impressive amount of iron and stone. It turned out though, that everybody in the neighborhood had decided to check the bridge themselves.
It took serious time to find a parking spot, but it's rewarding.

As Domien showed our next stop was North Queensferry to take a look at the Firth of Forth rail bridge, built by John Fowler and Benjamin Baker. It took from 1882 until 1890 to complete the bridge.

p12: The famous bridge as backdrop for an older type letterbox (specially shot for Phil and Howard )



p13: The bridge bokeh is still recognisable in the background of this crow (pls. correct me if this is a different bird)

Great beginning, can't wait to see what you captured on the island :)

And now I can't shut down that Firth of Fifth by Genesis playing in my head...

It's very nice to see how we complement each other with the pictures so far

One more about the aerdynamics of the MS City of Rotterdam

F10 Wheelhouse like the cockpit of a jumbojet (except for the wipers)



And a few more from the bridge


F11 Detail



F12 Pillars



F13 In full glory


Next stop for me will be the real deal from our first day out on the Isle of Sky

Our first day at the Isle of Skye was windy, cloudy, and rainy.
However, there were small gaps in the clouds, where the light brightened small parts of the impressive landscape.

D7: the old man of Storr

(look at the cars to get a sense of scale)

D8: Loch Fada


D9:Old man of Storr


And that was only our first stop on a little tour around the north side of Skye

I also like P4 despite the windmills, I am still not used to these objects in sea.
F5 is really nice as is F11.
The shots of the Isle of Skye from Domien are very atmospheric
