Dawn on the Adriatic Sea

Dawn on the Adriatic Sea

I slept with the drapes open in our stateroom on Deck 9 so that the sunrise would awaken me. On our first day at sea, I was greeted by this rosy dawn image, somewhere on the Adriatic Sea. Since we were about a third of the way between Venice and our first port of call, Corfu Greece, I assume this was on the Dalmation Coast. After this stunning sunrise I never missed another one, although not all were so colorful.

The soft ripples are the ship’s wake.

I didn’t mess with the color at all in these images; SOOC; I just increased the contrast slightly.

I stayed on the balcony for nearly 40 minutes watching the changing colors; then went straight to the fitness center for a 60 minute workout on the elliptical and stationary bike; one has to have a strategy to offset the damage done by the ship’s buffet and non-stop food service !
