Photographer's Note

The dining room of the Crystal Symphony. The elegant ship, the Symphony, was sailing off the coast of Tunisia when I spotted a glorious sunset, and in the foreground, flowers on display on a dinner table. In order to avoid a silhouette of the flowers I used a fill flash.

The peaceful still life is a far cry from the violence the area witnessed 2400 years ago, when the Romans launched the Second Punic Wars against Hannibal's Carthaginians. I had visited Carthage about a decade ago, but on this cruise the ship did not dock in Tunis.
