photoblog image RFA Fort Victoria

RFA Fort Victoria


Cammell Lairds Ship Repairers in Birkenhead has a contract with the Ministry of Defence to overhaul the Fleet Auxiliary ships of the Royal Navy. After leaving Birkenhead the RFA Fort Victoria moved to Canada Dock in Liverpool for further work. Seen here moored alongside the Dry Dock holding HMS Intrepid, it is very difficult to get a decent picture from the dock road as there is a large iron fence, containers and cars in the way.

Well worth the effort Les
Les Auld: I thought so Zed, thanks for the comment.
You managed to get a beautiful and decent one Les!
Les Auld: If one can call these ships beautiful Richard, thanks for the comment.
It's a good shot regardless of the cars Les but it is frustrating when you can't get a spot where you can omit things you don't want isn't it.
Les Auld: It is even more frustrating to have an eight foot high fence in the way as well, thanks for the comment.
yes its a shame about those damn cars Les, still a impressive capture thoughsmile
Les Auld: Had to hold the camera high above my head to reduce the impact and then hope for the best, thanks for the comment Tim.
