Great name for a company!
Les Auld: The Big Ditch is the nick-name for the Manchester Ship Canal Bill, so quite apt really. Thanks for the comment.
Liverpool is a very opportune place for any photographer. Good one Les.
Les Auld: Certainly plenty to keep me going Ron, just have to keep on going back to find what I have missed. Thanks for the comment.
What sort of ship is this Les, some sort of coaster. Dare I say it, the tower looks a bit like a big chimney coming out of the ship smile
Les Auld: It is a general cargo vessel Brian, I think it mostly carries stone. Thanks for the comment.

I wonder what it carries? It looks empty here
Les Auld: Stone and Balast Chris, thanks for the comment.
Very nice. Though the boat and buildings overlap. The boot scream for attention of the viewer smile

Nice colors and lighting. Looks very natural.
Les Auld: Not much choice of Point of View Paul, two vessels converging does not allow much time so you have to make do, this was the best of several images. Thanks for the comment.
