"Thanks David, Having been tipped off it was coming, I took my frost bitten body from the departure end of 27L and headed off to catch the inbound traffic arriving on 27R. And I got the first sunshine of the day. And my fingers started working again!"

"Morning David. No, it was a bit further along the road, near the Esso garage. You are right about the captain's eye; my first thought was along the lines of snapping the captain picking his nose as he sails by! As for L lenses, when…"

"I have a collection of Canon DSLRs, my first being the 350D. Then I have a 600D which I thought was brilliant. But then I found the 750D. I used a 70-300mm Canon zoom but found it was a bit soft at the full 300mm. So I bought a 70-200mm L series and…"

Biggest ship to visit Southampton

Posted on November 8, 2017 at 17:00 0 Comments

Today, the biggest ship ever to visit Southampton, Milan Maersk, arrived here. At 399m long, it is quite a whopper!

I was going to go and get a photo of it berthing but decided it was a long drive for just a single ship.

However, my mate Chas Betts caught it at Calshot and has posted some pics on my web site:

HMS Queen Elizabeth

The ship, container ship 150,853grt was leaving Antwerp, failed to make the turn in the direction of Walsoorden and ran aground.

At the time I write, it is being assisted by no fewer than 10 tugs and it looks as though another is en route.

The track is available on Marine Traffic:…
