What do you mean it's not Friday.....!!

When you're driving down the coast road towards Fremantle Harbour, if you look out to sea there will always be an orderly queue of container ships from all around the world waiting patiently (or so it looks from afar) to dock and unload their cargo. Fremantle is the busiest harbour in WA and operates 24/7 handling vehicle imports, livestock exports, cruise shipping, naval visits and so much more.. I'll definitely be showing you more of Fremantle, but for now I thought this shot might be suitable for Skywatch Friday..... btw I seem to be a little more confused than usual, when I saw the first few of your sky shots yesterday I thought 'Oh dear, they've posted too early' , as the morning went on I thought 'oh dear what happened to Thursday' hahaha! Hope you have a 'switched on' kind of weekend....!!

  4. What a wonderful photo! I love the color of the water. It's fun to think about how far those ships have traveled and how long they might have been at sea.

  6. Welcome to my world :) I rarely know what day, or date it is in the 'real' world!
    I once forgot to go to a clients house as I was convinced it was another day of the week, thankfully they know I live in la la land!

  8. Great color of the ocean. I don't think the sailors are waiting all that patiently. It must be frustrating to finish a voyage at sea and then be stuck waiting to unload.

  14. Great shot. We, too, see these ships going to Norfolk and up and down the James and York Rivers. They do seem to wait in line nicely.

  15. Forget the sky here. The foreground's the thing for me. Ships, water hues etc.
