Thanks for the comments, this was a reasonable day, for a rougher day look at a bit of life No2

Not my idea of a good time, but I love the photograph. I assume you were wearing a life vest when you shot this. 🙂 This shot really captures the power of the North Atlantic.

I suppose you get used to it, tankers float quite well, so long and they don’t break their backs.

Great document!! I like how it can be felt the energy of the sea.

i love your ocean travel shots. The seas look awesome. Have you read Eric Newby’s ‘The Last Grain Race’? Makes you feel the sea. TP

Yes, I read it many years ago.
There is a small old wooden sailing ship in Plymouth at the moment that is starting to trade with South America with cagoes like rum that are in no hurry to get to their destination. sounds rather nice.

Just wondering if it would be possible to include this photo on my blog page? Please contact me for details. Thank you!

This is such an amazing/terrifying photo! I really can’t stop looking at it.
I’m off to travel on a cargo ship soon and would love to post your photo on our blog to promote the trip. Would this be possible? Thank you!

Please feel free to use it, I think ‘bit of life No2’ is more worrying.
Remember it is a tanker and the lie much lower in the water than a cargo ship.
What and where is your blog.

Thanks, powerful indeed. I wish digital cameras had been invented then, you could get some good photos.

They’d have to be waterproof then, though… and only the most expensive ones have that property… 😉
