Hello Emile,

What a gem! This is a scene I know well, but I could not manage to photograph it so beautifully. Add to your list of a tripod and a ladder, a locking pair of pliers. On the end of one of the handles is a screw used for adjusting the jaws, before tightening the handles. The screw has the same diameter as the screw that is used in mounting a camera to a tripod. Here is a photograph of locking pliers which you are no doubt familiar with. You simply replace the screw with a 1/4 inch screw with no head, that can be screwed on the bottom of a camera.

Fabulous photograph of the Monte Carlo Bay at night.

Warm regards,

Default To batalay: Good suggestion

Thanks for your suggestions my friend. I already have for long time a tripod and a monopod but I found so difficult to carry them with me, it's fine when I'm taking photos here in my country, it's easy to take them in my car but to go in a cruise or to go to New York taking them with me is very difficult, and now we are also talking to take a ladder with me, wow....can you imaging me entering inside the Crystal Serenity with a ladder???? or walking the streets of Taormina with a tripod, a ladder and my Nikon D200 that weight almost two pounds,,,,no way.
About your suggestion in mounting a camera to a tripod, I will try that, it looks a very good idea.
Thank you again my friend and wish you a nice week end.
