navigation station at dusk

Navigation station and chart table at dusk. Another one of those photos that falls under the, nothing to take pictures of at night category. However, it illustrates a world defined by the limits of one's artificial illumination. It also shows where those on watch cram themselves during the night, surrounded by media players, e-readers, and navigation equipment. There is absolutely nothing to see above deck at night that the radar can't see better. Of course, it's an eerie feeling, trusting your life to lowest-bidder supplied electronics. Pitch dark trips above deck, however, are essential: they keep one alert and aware of the state of the above deck equipment and sails.
