Hi, my friends!
This is one of the ferries that transports people and vehicles between Europe and Asia regularly two or three times an hour across the Dardanelles strait. The strait is about two to five miles wide (you can see the opposite (European) bank behind the ship and I'm shooting from the Asian bank - from the pier of Chanakkale town.

Добрый день, Антон,
наверное это самое распространенное название для фотографий в этом проливе. Судя по окраске неба, скоро грянет буря. Хорошие цвета и отличная резкость.
Всех благ и отличных выходных!

Lovely image thanks to this stormy light that pushes up the contrasts, still you have exposed it very well and as a result your highlights are shining
have a nice day JY

Merhaba Komşu, when it is stormy in the Dardanelles strait, those ferries do not work till the weather calms down. I liked the grey tone of the sky. Best regards, Tolga

Nice looking ferry. I like how the light is shining on the ferry and middle part of the water while the rest is darker with gloomy overhead sky. Good detail of passengers on boards. Regards. Latiff.

A fine maritime motif with the ferry leaving Asia bound for Europe!
And I think it is only two places in the world where you can take an image like this hehehe...
The vessel is well framed with sharp fine details!

Good evening Anton!
You have had a wonderful - but difficult - light when taking this one. The a bit threatening sky even emphasizes this impression. This must be a very special place.
I think I never have seen so many life-savers ... ;-))
Greetings from an a bit springlike Germany!
