Last Sunday and my first trip of the year to the port at Southampton. It was a beautiful day and the port was busy with 5 cruise ships and 3 containerships alongside and so there was plenty for me to photograph. Here are some of my images

The small boat in front of the ship is the M/V Alison MacGregor. It is run by a charity, Solent Dolphin, to take disabled people on tours around the port and vicinity of Southampton Water. It is named after a young woman who was killed in a 1988 rail disaster at Clapham (London). Her parents responded to an appeal by the charity by making a large donation to help fund the original boat.

Very nice set Ossie. The B&W is my favorite of this set. Interesting story about M/V Alison MacGregor.

Thank you. The mono conversion is my favourite image of that day too.

Ossie, could you post the color version, if you don't mind please? I want to see if the
skies are as dramatic in the color version.

Hi Sury

Happy to post the original but I am at an airport leaving on vacation and will not have access to my computer for several weeks. I don't know if it will help but the fourth image is of the same vessel and was taken just a short time before the mono image.

.

In the fourth shot, the rippling water acquires almost a silvery or mercury quality… :)

Thanks for sharing, Ossie.
