That is already a great photo, I mean your photo, this one:



I use also a program to stitch photos. what makes me confused was the curved horizon that seemed typical of a big angular...but the boat didn't not show any distortion.

After that great sunset, my best sunset of 2012. Late September, somewhere along the Tyrrhenian Italian coast:

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

and now that the new season is almost there and I have finished planning, this will be my first stop, the Island of Ponza. I hope this year the wind will allow me to anchor on the other side that is even more beautiful. If so, a photo is promised







Passing Capri:




And anchoring in Baia. the photo is alright but the place is a disillusion. The natural setting is magnificent but completely spoiled by bad architecture...and in huge number. It seems that it is only nice under water and you need a permit to dive there

Baiae (in modern Italian Baia), a frazione of the comune of Bacoli in the Campania region of Italy, was a Roman seaside resort on the Bay of Naples. It was said to have been named after Baius, who was supposedly buried there. Baiae was for several hundred years a fashionable resort, especially towards the end of the Roman Republic. Baiae was even more popular than Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Capri with the super-rich, notorious for the hedonistic temptations on offer, and for rumours of scandal and corruption. Baiae was an integral part of Portus Julius, home port of the western Imperial Fleet of ancient Rome.....

The topographical wonders of Baiae, along with the help of Roman engineers, made the city a perfect candidate for a resort for the ultra wealthy. Many elaborate villas were built in Baiae, including those of Julius Caesar and Nero. In fact, a large part of the town became imperial property under Augustus and later emperors—it was often a getaway for the elite with its large swimming pools and its domed casino. It was at his villa near Baiae that the Emperor Hadrian died in AD 138.

Baiae was sacked by Muslim raiders in the 8th century AD and was deserted because of malaria by 1500. Because of coastal subsidence most of Baiae is now under water in the Bay of Naples, largely due to local volcanic activity.

Charlestown, Cornwall

"Charlestown grew out of a small fishing village called West Polmear (also West Porthmear). Prior to the building of the harbour trading vessels landed and loaded on the beach. It was developed in the Georgian era (specifically from 1790 when work on building an outer quay began to 1799 when the first dock gates were erected) as a new town, and named after local landowner Charles Rashleigh who had a hand in its design. In 1799 the locals asked his permission to rename the place Charles's Town which in turn became Charlestown. The works were to the plans of John Smeaton. It was built to facilitate the transport of copper from nearby mines but its main function became the export of china clay from the region's quarries and, to a limited extent, still serves that purpose today".
