The Cromwell Fruit Sculpture was erected by the Rotary Club of Cromwell and has become the town's icon. Built in 1989, the four fruits (pear, apple, nectarine and apricot) weigh over nine tonne, are 13 metres high, and have been repainted three times.

Cromwell is the service centre for an extensive farming and stone fruit growing area. It is between State Highway 6 (linking to Wanaka, 50 km north, and Queenstown, 60 km west) and State Highway 8B leading to the Lindis Pass, 75 km northeast, and Alexandra, 33 km south.

This was taken at the Grand Aquarium, Ocean Park Hong Kong. Ocean Park Hong Kong, commonly known as Ocean Park, is a marine mammal park, oceanarium, animal theme park and amusement park situated in Wong Chuk Hang and Nam Long Shan in the Southern District of Hong Kong. It is the second largest theme park in Hong Kong, following Hong Kong Disneyland.

The life span of seahorses - classified as fish - ranges from one to five years. There are 46 species in the world. Three species of seahorse {Spotted Sehorse / Yellow Seahorse / Estuary Seahorse (Hippocampus kuda), Longnose or 3-Spot Seahorse (Hippocampus trimaculatus) and Great Seahorse / Kellogg’s Seahorse (Hippocampus kelloggi)} have been recorded in Hong Kong waters and they are moderately abundant around coral areas and in eastern Hong Kong waters down to about 7 m depth. They are listed as vulnerable or endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. According to senior scientific officer, Shadow Sin Ying-tung, "They are in danger because of over-exploitation for Chinese medicine use, degradation of habitats and by-catch in commercial fishing."

This image is included in a gallery "Mes coups de coeurs N°17. My favourites N°17." by cpenotgiraudeau.

This image was taken in February 1988 using a Nikon FM camera fitted with 24mm f2.8 Nikkor lens. The film was Kodak Gold 100. ISO was set at 100. It was converted into digital format using a Plustek 8200i digital scanner. After 31 years of storage, the negative was invariably full of scratches and pestered with moulds. It required hours of photo-shopping to clean up obvious artefacts. This is one photo that has been urging me to be published and shared with the Flickr community for years. The hard work has really paid off.

Background:-
The canal was opened on 25 July 1893. The principal engineer: István Türr and Béla Gerster. The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island. The canal was dug through the Isthmus at sea level and has no locks. It is 6.4 kilometres in length and only 21.4 metres wide at its base, making it impassable for most modern ships. Nowadays it has little economic importance and is mainly a tourist attraction.
The canal consists of a single channel 8 metres (26 ft) deep, excavated at sea level (thus requiring no locks), measuring 6,343 metres (20,810 ft) long by 24.6 metres (81 ft) wide at the top and 21.3 metres (70 ft) wide at the bottom. The rock walls, which rise 90 metres (300 ft) above sea level, are at a near-vertical 80° angle. The canal is crossed by a railway line, a road and a motorway at a height of about 45 metres (148 ft). In 1988 submersible bridges were installed at sea level at each end of the canal, by the eastern harbour of Isthmia and the western harbour of Poseidonia.

Although the canal saves the 700-kilometre (430 mi) journey around the Peloponnese, it is too narrow for modern ocean freighters, as it can accommodate ships only of a width up to 17.6 metres (58 ft) and draft up to 7.3 metres (24 ft). Ships can pass through the canal only one convoy at a time on a one-way system. Larger ships have to be towed by tugs. The canal is currently used mainly by tourist ships; around 11,000 ships per year travel through the waterway. (sourced from Wikipedia)
