New Orleans: Sunset On My Mind


One of the things I like to do when on a cruise is to watch the city disappear in the distance as the ship sails away. On this particular cruise, the cityscape was not the only attraction. The sky was particularly colorful and enjoyable.

  14. Nice composition. Good use of the bridge and city skyline silhouette to contrast the rich spectrum of colours from the sky in the backdrop.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
