The German LV Deutsche Bucht, sailing on the river Ems, back to her home harbor Emden. I should have been on the ship, but missed it due to an attack of severe headache that kept me in bed in the morning. In the afternoon I drove to the river to see the vessel return to the harbor and I could make some pictures of it. The fact that I could never have made pictures of a sailing LV when being on the ship made my day, despite the fact that it would have been nice to be on open sea with the LV (that usually serves as a restaurant in Emden).

Sorry to hear about the bad luck, but the photo op at least partially makes up for it. I'll take that kind of bad luck from time to time. :)

Oh, do I understand about Severe Headaches. I cannot drive when I get one. The day was not a total lose - you did get to take some photos you otherwise would not have been able to take. I do hope you get another opportunity to go out on this sail LV in the not to distance future.
