Sunset over the Port

A red summer sunset over the port, including a view of the lighthouse to the right, the cranes being used to build the new commercial harbour in the center, the very small and distant outline of the Madonna dei Martiri church to the left, just in front of the church are a rowing team practicing for the ongoing 2009 Trofeo dell'Adriatico (Molfetta is currently in 3rd place), and, in the foreground there is one of the large stone posts that boats tie onto when docked in the port.

What, no music? I guess that work make this scene absolutely perfect;a movie ending, maybe?

Such a peaceful moment. And your commentary really helps us to see the many details of this image.

Ah, I hope you are enjoying those mellow summer evenings!

All the best from me at Sydney Daily Photo. I’m so busy with a new job I hardly have time to post, much less comment these days!

Beautiful and so peaceful.

It is funny to see that the basic ingredients are quite the same for all the ports I know. Beautiful image and almost lyrical description.

Wonderful coloured sky and the way it colours the water is lovely.
