A Water Salute


Harking back to the summer of 2008 and the Tall Ships leaving Liverpool, the tug Svitzer Bidston presets a salute using her water cannon as the sailing boats left the River Mersey.

l like this shot but would love a closer look at that tall ship. Tony
Les Auld: Unfortunately I can't remember which one the ship was, there seemed so many at the time. thanks for the comment though.
he he the boat on the right is getting a virtual pasting.
Tall ship looks wonderful!
Could slip back to F7.1 for some more shutter speed.
Composition almost perfect. Few small nits, but it's one to make one smile!!
Cheers
Rob
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Rob, standing on the rolling deck of a Mersey Ferry meant I had to let the camera take the decisions, I just pointed it.
Great image. Choppy sea, loads of spray and an interesting contrast between old and new.
Les Auld: Thanks Ian, appreciate the comment.
Great picture, lovely tug with water canons at full burst. What a water mist they are creating, making the tall ship look rather ghostly. But I'd rather see the tug than the tall ship.
Les Auld: I just love tugs Sheila, they make great subjects, thanks for the comment.
How convenient to be so near to capture this salute Les.
Les Auld: The benefit of being on the ferry Brian, thanks for the comment.
