Freedom from 38,000 feet.

Recommended Posts

We were on our way back to Memphis yesterday from Montego Bay. We had just crossed the eastern tip of Cuba, and I noticed a cruise ship ahead. As we flew closer I realized it was the Freedom of the Seas. I snapped a few pics. I wish the quality was better, however I was using a small digital camera.

 

We were approx. 160nm south of Miami. She was heading about 340 degrees.

Nice shot fellow Arkansan!

 

I can't believe you got such a great shot with a "small digital camera"! My Canon Digital Rebel XT wouldn't have taken that great a shot! (I'm still thinking it's supposed to...I think it's the user!) :D

I don't know if it's the light, or the angle, or a new propeller design, but did you notice how fast the propeller wash disappears? I recall previous cruises (not on the Freedom) where the prop wash seems to stretch for miles to the horizon. Anyone have any pictures of this taken from the back of the Freedom? That's always a classic cruise album photo, but this will be much different than others have been.

What camera model did you use and what is the maximum optical zoom? I was really impressed with the closeup shot.

 

 

The camera is a Sony DSC-P200. It is a 7.2 megapixel camera. They don't make it anymore. They have replaced it with smaller version. I was shooting on 3 megapixels yesterday. I find that if you are shooting in 7 megapixels it takes too long to load, and uses way too much memorey, on your computer.
