Great Longroute 2010-03-01 2:08

Nice and very interesting view of this famous (or infamous) lock. I guess you were on a cruising ship and could take the photo from the deck: a priviledged pov. Great perspective and fine intense colours make the image alive and dynamic.
This lock is the nightmare of the yachts which have to cross this canal, the stream of water is so strong that six persons with six ropes are needed to keep the boat and avoid her to be smashed against the bank.

Smile To Longroute: Panama Canal

Hello Donato,
many thanks for your comment Yes, I was on a cruise ship and we saw how quick the lock was flooded. Six trains on every side hold the ship in balance.

have a nice day,
