With everyone nestled in at home, huddled around the hearth, the holidays can be a lonely time to be on the water. Among all the festive submissions to Cruising World's Holiday Photo Contest, all the images of twinkling lights and joyful boat parades, one photo stood out as the loner. In "Christmas Tree on Wavertree," a full moon shines down on a brightly lit evergreen standing sentry in the rigging of a tall ship. There are no people in sight, just the boat, the tree, and the moon. The holiday parties are taking place elsewhere; at Christmas time, it's lonely on the waterfront.
