Holy Cow, Heinrich. These shots are amazing - the first pics I've ever seen that truly show the scale of a big cruise ship. Colors are terrific and - as usual - super PP. BTW, did you have a chance to have a "cheese burger in paradise?"

As Sailor said, these shots are amazing and wonderful!

It isn't immediately apparent how a ship that size can move into position on the dock, but they've done it. The colors are just beautiful.

Heinrich, great series and wonderful colors, I bet you were amazed at the difference in temps and humidity from Canada. Was there much security at your location in Haiti, it looks like an area that can be easily controlled. That last shot puts that ship in perspective. HUGE!!

Thank you Jer for the kind words and no, "cheeseburger in paradise" never came up.

Take care,

Hi Bob and thank you. Haiti was nice for temps and humidity but Jamaica was brutal, I only lasted an hour or so on shore and went back on board. Labadee is privately owned, I don't know whether Caribbean Cruise owns it or leases it but they are the only ones there and have full control. Security on the ship was like airport security every time you re-boarded.

Take care,

Charlie, homeport for the ship is Fort Lauderdale Florida and I believe that all cruises start from there, ours did.

Take care,

Nice shots of Labadee. I've been living in Port-au-Prince this past year and have fallen in love with this country. It's too bad that many people will be left content with visiting Labadee, and not explore the rest of the country. Haiti is extremely misunderstood. Western media portrays it as this horrible, terrifying dump of a country, when in fact it has so much beauty and is inhabited by such wonderful people. I have had no problems this year wandering around with my K-5 out snapping photos of all corners of the country. I only hope that people will start to see Haiti for its potential. In the next few decades I have no doubt that it will turn into the tourist hotspot it once was. In the meantime, if you're up for the adventure, come see Haiti before it happens because the Raw, untouched beauty is something really special.

Here are a couple of photos I have taken this year:
