Harbour Photos this Week: October 24-28

Riding in HMCS SACKVILLE back to the Dockyard (covered in a separate post) was definately the high point of my week, photography wise, but there were a few other things to catch my camera's attention. I will start with some incidental photos taken during SACKVILLE's transit.

On Tuesday, there was some more naval action when ATHABASKAN and ST. JOHN'S left to participate in Exercise Spartan Warrior.

Wednesday I was in meetings in Dartmouth, and didn't get to see what was in the harbour, but on Thursday the French Navy's offshore patrol vessel BOUGAINVILLE departed. She had been visiting the Dockyard for the week.



In a relatively rare occurence, there were two cruise ships overnighting on the seawall on Thursday, and the Port of Halifax was kind enough to tweet this news to area photographers. I didn't get the best photos, but here they are:

Carribean Princess and AIDAmar on the seawall Thursday night.
There were also some interesting sunrises and other cloud effects this week, two of which I captured and will show here.

I will finish with a photo that wasn't taken this week, but which I finally got around to processing this week.
