Shipping by...

Built 2002, 84m, 4000t, Offshore Supply Vessel

There are just enough shots taken with the 'Nik' before it gave up the ghost to share until close of year. Not one at a time, but grouped like this, so that in the New Year I can bring you work from the Fudge.

Looking at these, you would hardly know the camera was on its last legs! For each good shot though, 20 or 30 had to be discarded due to the lack of focus and the peculiar shaking behaviour of the lens.

These were taken when over in Aberdeen in November.

The one above was taken from the train going South to Edinburgh; it is Montrose harbour and there were a fair few ships in - but couldn't get their details.

This one on the left was waiting for me as I arrived home from Edinburgh...
Godavari Spirit, crude oil tanker, 2004 Malta, 275m, 16000t deadwgt. Headed for Finnart.



  1. I do love the boats, but your skies look like ours -- GRAY!! Great pics as always, Yam! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

  2. Nice shots. I love to see the ocean and boats that carry wares around the corner or around the world.

  3. Great photos of very awesome ships!

    Happy Week,

  4. I always enjoy your photos, Yam, but can't wait for blue skies to show up once again!
    Thanks for sharing at http://www.image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2014/12/a-holiday-recipe-for-you.html!

  5. Not at all! I do not at all think the camera was at the last stage...these shots look wonderful!

  6. Nice pictures - I wonder what these places will be like when the oil drips dry?

    We all have buttons on our cameras we don't understand, much less use!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  7. I love these too I'm even more envious now LOL

  8. Memorable moments of experiencing the wonders, which life offers!
