The Dutch pilot vessel 'Orion' and the Belgian pilot vessel 'Deurlo' are passing each other to and from a seagoing vessel on the Western Scheldt.

Image is taken yesterday, just outside the Merchant Harbor in Flushing, Zeeland, The Netherlands.

Very nice shot, Cornelius.

Composition is strong.

Good good detail and clarity/focus. Great natural colour.

And, of course.. thanks for sharing this look through your lens with us.

Lots of good colour and details...

You capture the action very well, with the wave motion!

This brings back a lot of memories to me Cornelius. I disliked calling at Antwerp for two reasons: First the long delays in berthing - waiting for locks to open etc. and secondly always we sailed around 2 A.M. and again with delays. But this is a very nice capture of the two pilot vessels with sharp details.

Smooth seas do not make skilful sailors.

Excellent composition on this Mr. C. - I like the wave action and the background adds a nice touch.
