I went back into Liverpool last night to hopefully get a decent picture of HMS Albion against a sunset but it was not to be. the sunset sort of fizzled out.

What I did get though was a cloud of black smoke, a squawking tannoy system and then four fire engines. They did not stay too long though, perhaps it was just a chip pan fire.

This image shows the size of this vessel very well Les: it's much bigger than I at first thought
Les Auld: Strange how it looked quite small until it actually berthed at the landing stage Chris, thanks for the comment.

There is just a hint of a pinkish tinge on the side as the sun slips away. Fine photo Les.

The hint of pink and blue in this image totally makes it worthwhile, Les. I love your PPing!
Les Auld: Many thanks Ginnie, just a bit of work in Photoshop and a touch of Topaz to bring it to life. Thanks for the comemnt.
It's enormous Les. I like the light at the time.
Les Auld: It is pretty large Brian, thanks for the comment.
Its a great shot of her Les. Steve is loving these smile
Les Auld: Glad he is Linda, now have to wait for the next one. Thanks for the comment.
You may have missed the sunset, Les, but the colors are still worthy. The minuscule figures near the bow really show the enormous size of the ship.
Les Auld: It is rather big Beverley, thanks for the comment.
I like this better..Its in fading light with the lights on..Great image Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, seems to work ok.

I am just trying to imagine the impact of a chip pan fire on a ship like that. Must be like stopping power of a fly against the windscreen of a diesel loco smile
Les Auld: I have often wondered if, when a fly hits a windscreen, does the vehicle actually stop for a finite period of time as energy transfers from one body to the other. Too much spare time I suppose. Thanks for the comment.
