Tragic accident with cruise ship off Italian Coast.


posted on 16th of january, 2012

We are all now aware of the tragic accident last Friday to the Costa Concordia, a cruise ship with about 4000 passengers on board , off the coast in Italy.
There must be a demand for images of that ship prior to the accident.
I knew I had images of cruise ships anchored off the Greek Island of Santorini but upon searching my portfolio I could only come up with Costa Fortuna presumably a sister ship of Costa Concordia.

Interestingly this picture shows just how much superstructure there is above the deck a subject of current discussion by investigators and news commentators.

I have a few other images of cruise ships but for me this is a lesson on how we should be on the look out for editorial images especially while on holidays. These images of other boats shown below were captured in 2011 from the Greek Island of Santorini.

Several times I have seen this extremely beautiful ship with the happy passengers on it. Arriving or departure was really breath taking scene! Very..very …sad…

On this site (in Italian) there are some photos of the tragic accident.
I lived and worked in Giglio Island for two years and looking at them is really terrible for me.

It was a tragic accident caused by a failure of the captain of the ship...
There is a collection managed by Nikitu with Costa Concordia images here:Costa Concordia
