You caught some good action by this little tugboat that could, Les!
Les Auld: It certainly could Ginnie, a game little boat working hard as it should be. Thanks for the comment.

Someone should tell the good Lady that she is not being taken to the scrapheap younder. Maybe she will baulk less smile

Great shot.
Les Auld: Thanks for te comment Louis.
Looks like hard work for the tug Les, but oh, that rubbish on the dock, what an eyesore, as is the windfarm in the distance.
Les Auld: That rubbish is the second most valuable cargo exported through Liverpool to all points east for conversion to all sorts of white goods which are then shipped back to us. Pity we can't make them in the UK anymore. Thanks for the comment.

Love the way you have composed this, Les. I also love that you can see the effort needed to move these great big things. (:o)
Les Auld: And the skill involved, the Lady Jane was just skimming down the side of HMS Albion moored ahead of her. Thanks for the comment.
Almost apocalyptic backdrop Les. The scale of the subjects is juxtaposed well.
Les Auld: Scrap bound for points east Dave, thanks for the comment.
