By the looks a naval vessel. It must be some kind of a maintenance ship. Beautiful sky at the back.
Les Auld: Royal Fleet Auxiliary small tanker Louis, thanks for the comment.
You have captured this at a good time Les.
Les Auld: The magic hour Chad, thanks for the comment.
Great lighting on this Les.

This is a strange looking ship Les, what is it for?
Les Auld: Part of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary she is a small fleet tanker designed for replenishment at sea. Just been refitted at Cammell Lairds and having a final fitting out. Thanks for the comment Brian.
