Jeju Island by maggiemae

Jeju Island

Cocktail of the Day was “A Berry Nice Martini’ but I found it too sweet. We were staring out at the Port Scenes on Jeju Island, a South Korean destination but the volcanic hills were shrouded in mist. More mist! There were lots of lighthouses around, so it must have been tricky to get in this small harbour. We did see a big Cruise Boat aim towards it but it had to anchor outside the harbour.

Three good things:
1. A yoga class where I was the only lady and wished I had taken my glasses off - holding positions for absolutely ages as well as specs proved a serious problem!
2. An opera concert was totally the best - lovely arias and the very young performers were so good. I stood at the top of the stairs in the theatre and was asked if I wanted a seat about 4 times and if I wanted a glass of champagne about 5 times! I just wept a little for the beautiful music! (photo to come)
3. The ship obviously ordered a bottle of Shiraz for John who wanted one several nights ago and was told there wasn’t any! It must have been Shanghai where they loaded bottles of Australian Shiraz in for him!
Wow - gorgeous..

Interesting to see the white building surrounded by nature.

Very moody, the mist is a great background for the building.

Such a shame it was misty and you couldn't see the view properly but adds a touch of mystery.

Berry misty, very unfortunate. I love lighthouses and is certainly a strong focal point in this image.

Very misty and mysterious image. Love the lighthouse standing proud. The opera sounds very moving and beautiful. How spoilt to ge the shiraz especially ordered - I hop[e he enjoyed it more than your Berry Nice Martini

Wonderful capture

Nice shot! I like how dark it is around the white building.
April 29th, 2016  
A beautiful shot but a shame your views were obscured with the mist and fog !

Lovely capture of this lighthouse far, far away.

The dark misty background bring out the white of the lighthouse and the red on the building/site next to it.

Looks like a mysterious mist on those hills- but lovely all the same.

Spectacular capture.

Loving your commentary of life on board, I am amazed at you being the only woman doing yoga, do men do yoga? Perhaps you meant you were the only one there!

@happypat No there were about 6, Pat. The men (except for one fit and supple gentlemen with no sense of humour) were a bit stiff. Next class there were 4 women and all (except for one enviable slim and supple young lady who had no sense of humour) fell over constantly laughing!

Great composition and contrast in this. The opera concert sounds wonderful.

I love the way this stands out, with the misty skyline.
