Marsh Harbour, with a population of 5,314 is the largest town in the Abacos, and the third largest in The Bahamas. Marsh Harbour lies on Great Abaco Island and is the major gateway to this island group. The settlement lies on a peninsula just off the Great Abaco Highway, which runs south through Great Abaco to Cherokee Point and Little Harbour. North of town, the road becomes S.C. Bootle Highway with a smooth stretch that runs north and west toward Treasure Cay and Little Abaco.
Marsh Harbour is also a shipbuilding center, but tourism accounts for most of its revenues. A number of good inns are located here. Although the town doesn't have the quaint New England charm of either New Plymouth or Hope Town, it does have a shopping center and various other facilities not found in many Out Island settlements, including a post office, bookstore, grocery stores, specialty shops, travel agencies, and laundries. Visitors come to boat, swim or snorkel, and stay at one of the lodges located near Bay Street on the waterfront, though some adventurers reserve a day or two to kayak in the Marls on trips conducted by naturalist guides.
This photo was taken at the same location as yesterday's upload, using my camera's panorama feature. In fact, the Duke & Duchess of yesterday's upload are located on the left, just off the frame.

Marsh Harbour, Turistik Taraf
5314 nüfusu ile Marsh Harbour (Bataklık Liman), Abacoların en büyük ve Bahamalar’ın üçüncü büyük şehridir. Marsh Harbour Büyük Abaco Adası üzerinde bulunuyor ve bu ada grubu için önemli bir kapıdır. Yerleşme Büyük Abaco içinden güneye doğru, Cherokee Noktası ve Little Harbour’a (Küçük Liman) giden Büyük Abaco Anayolu’na yakın kapalı bir yarımada üzerinde uzanmaktadır. Şehrin kuzeyinde yol Treasure Cay (Hazine Kumsalı) ve Little Abaco’ya (Küçük Abaco) doğru kuzey ve batıya açılan bir düz uzantı ile SC Bootle Anayolu olur.
Marsh Harbour aynı zamanda bir gemi yapımı merkezidir, ancak turizm gelirlerinin çoğunu oluşturur. Bir dizi iyi han burada bulunmaktadır. Şehrin, New Plymouth (Yeni Plymouth) veya Hope Town’daki (Ümit Şehri) şirin New England (Yeni İngiltere) cazibesi olmasa da, birçok Dış Adalar yerleşimlerinde bulunmayan bir alışveriş merkezi ve postahane, kitapçı, marketler, özel dükkanlar, seyahat acenteleri ve çamaşırhaneler dahil, çeşitli diğer tesisleri vardır. Ziyaretçiler tekneyle gezmek, yüzmek ya da şnorkel ve kıyıda Bay (Körfez) Sokağı yakınında bulunan pansiyonlardan birinde kalmak için gelirler, gerçi bazı maceraperestler doğa rehberleri tarafından yapılan gezilerde marnlarda kano için bir veya iki gün ayırırlar.
Bu fotoğraf benim kameranın panorama özelliğini kullanarak, dünkü yüklemeyle aynı yerde çekilmiştir. Aslında, dünkü yüklenmedeki Dük ve Düşes karenin hemen solunda yer almaktadır.

Excellent well stretched panorama with lovely sweeping view, good depth, superb lighting and rich colour tones. The compo renders a warm view with the prominent boats strike as strong focal and contrast, i think the low clouds are real bonus to finish off superbly. Well done shot, Congrats

As panorama image, find I your picture very well, maybe one advice, makes never a panorama picture 1/2 on 1/2, but on 1/3
This would give a totally other image.
I can enjoy of these picture.
Composition and presentation are excellent
Very well done, TFS.

Good choice to crop on horizontally, concetrate the view over the stunning turquoise water and the many boats anchored along.
Superb clarity and depth, bright daylight exquisitely applied.

I enjoy this picture very much. I love the theme, the view, the rewarding panoramic frame and the colours. It's delightful to discover gradually the depth and details of this scenery, the sea and the sky are excellently defined and make lovely backdrops. You handled the lighting very aptly, the white tones have pleasing brightness and the reflections make the view even more vibrant. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Lovely view of the harbor in panoramic format. Like the contrast between the sky and the sea and those boats across the frame. Very well done, thanks for sharing.

You're capturing well this harbor by a good panoramic view and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the color contrast between clearn sea and blue sky, and many ships which are anchored to the wooden/short pier. It shows well the feather of Caribbean Sea, and looks like the better place enjoying marin sports or crusing trip.

Ahh now this is what I think of when I think of the Bahamas. A beautiful panoramic shot, with superb management of the harsh light, wonderful colours and superb contrasts. The reflections particularly of the sea poles - are especially attractive.
Thanks for sharing, warmest wishes
