Nine of Cups

Nine of Cups

Part of Constitution Dock with Mount Wellington (1270 m, 4000 ft.) in the background.
The dock was in process of being emptied of boats prior to arrival of the fleet
of 77 yachts in the Sydney-Hobart race starting on Boxing Day.

The yacht flying a US flag is the "Nine of Cups" registered in Denver, CO.
It's name derives from Tarot cards and represents notions of 'being contented', 'having dreams come true' etc.
An entertaining blog is available with many photographs showing the yacht's facilities,
recent travels around Tasmania, and elsewhere around Australia:

Best viewed in 'original' format.

A golden glow pervades this scene with the water glimmering as green and dark reflections snake through it. The tall buildings add urban sophistication and the rising curve of the mountains a nice topping under the soothing blue.
