Hi Ken,

I think as you said it shows the harbour entrance, it suits still in Shipping main category, as entraces & shipping lanes would describe "shipping" as the ships have to use those getting in & out the harbour.

Hi again Pekka: Well now, the purpose was to show the harbour entrance from the landward with the harbour islands ( there are three: George's Isld,McNab's Island and Lawlor's Island) which together block the North Atlantic to the South- East, and thus form Halifax Harbour,one of the World's finest and deepest ice-free harbours. Anyway, since I didn't include ship specs,they are incidental as they are always plying the harbour,one a tourist tall ship, and the other, one of three harbour passenger ferries. Your call Pekka. Mine is Harbour Overview/Outview? Cheers,Ken

Hi Ken,

As the view is toward the island, and it shows two vessels, think Shipping would be better place for the photo. Would be also good to hear your thoughts.
