Southampton Shipping

Unread postby Ossie » Thu May 16, 2019 7:44 am

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

Very nice, Ossie.

Good ship and port activity photos, not to mention good compositions.

Thanks for sharing,

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.
