By the way, thanks for posting it Brian.
It came as a pleasant surprise.

She was decommissioned soon after her trip to the Great Lakes in 1988.
I remember this occasion quite well. There were grey skies all around when she was about to sail by Verchères on that September morning, all around except for an opening in the clouds to the East. I didn't know whether I was going to launch my boat or not to get close to the ship to document her further more as I had taken lots of slides when she sailed into Montréal some weeks before. I opted for the launch and stayed with DEUTSCHLAND until the sun came out, some 20 minutes in all. Patience is a basic requirement in this hobby and I was very much rewarded with this unique moment, bright morning sun on a light colored hull with dark grey skies as a backdrop. I chose my angles while manoeuvering the boat getting quite close to her bow in the process (intentionally naturally...) and clicking at will. The officer of the watch ran to the starboard bridgewing to wave me off frantically but I closed on her stern instead to get shots from near her wash. All in a day work I guess. I was very pleased with the results when the slides were processed.

Great shot, I believe she was a training ship, hence the prefix A in her pennant number.
