    The only russian language i can read is when it stands on vessels.
    By looking at the marine traffic ais. There stands the name.too in " normal" letters.
    I always look at it of it's worth to wait there. If the ais is empty ,i'm gone.
    But on the smaller vessel is surprise surprise, the name smaller.
    By looking at the ais i can see the name of it.

    But this is the only free angle.
    A little more to the right and the breakwater shows up in the image.

    Another point is that it's far away.
    I use mostly here the 200mm lence.
    Until a big vessel apears, for the side image i go back to the Standard lence

    OH, heck - that is a LONG ship... had to go online to see her length.

    317.536 deadweight crude oil tanker with a LOA of 496 meters! That is one long ship! She is new too, built in 2013.

    I need a load of gravel under my balcony but I guess the ship won't make it up to Risvollan(!?)

    Great looking ships - looks like the gravel business goes well.

    Oh, Thijs.... you read Russian too?

    LOL

    You got a great place to take pictures of the ships - with no disturbing background issues, just lots of nice blue seas in the background!

    Drone pictures are and will be something totally different than images taken from a random place on land.Superb photos.
    Thank you very much - your kind comment makes me very happy!

    That ubiquitous response "Thanks for sharing" just isn't anywhere near enough.
    I am actually feeling highly honoured to have been allowed to see onboard this special ship, and to have the opportunity to do that through the camera lens of a master.

    That's "master" two ways - as a Captain, the chance to cast a professional eye over that bridge must surely have sent the pulse racing, and, as the master of photography I know you to be, you have as always captured and conveyed the experience and the surroundings. May I especially mention the colours, reflections and light of #8. And look how the view of the deck in #10 parallels the curve inside. You do the architect proud…

    And as for furnishings - we could enthuse about chairs all day long!

    I'd love to see over one of these ships; in a funny way they look quite elegant, very stable (I think) and although the resolution isn't great - the ships still look inviting.
    Thanks for posting, Captain.

    Some of these ships may even meet with the approval of Thijs??
