This, briefly empty, dry-dock at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, is one of the places that is a source for many of my pictures. It is usually very busy with workers cleaning and painting the ships. The ‘bridge’ that the photo was taken from is a huge steel drum that is filled with water and plug the entrance before the water is pumped out.

Another picture 10 months later, this time with Photoshop CS5 Merge to HDR Pro.
