Thanks i did my best to get the pic. Well is not as bad as getting shot, but I have been going to take pics in that pier for 4 years without getting hassled, ok i knew i was trespassing but come on is only a pier they worried im going to steal a 20ton boulder or what...i think they should worry about real criminal issues... but bottomline frustrating that im not going to be able to take anymore decent pics of ships in Cape Town, specially when i see the ships sailing trough from my living room :-(

Hi Javi

Nice shot. I suppose as it's South Africa you are lucky not to have been shot. Just what was your crime?. Is S.A. getting as bad as UK - we just had an Austrian guy made to wipe his memory card because he'd been taking buses and bus stations. At least you were allowed to keep your pics. !!

I know the spot, I posted MSC Jade taken there a few years ago whilst on holiday.
