Well shot Kent, an excellent picture in itself but capturing such a moment for posperity is even better value. Sad when you see an old ship like this depart for the last time.

A real gem of a photo, Kent.
She went by Verchères at night time.
Luckily you were there on location to immortalize the event.

Thanks for the comment, I was really blessed with good natural lighting, she arrived at this spot at the right time.

Excellent photo Kent. I suppose going to Egypt for storage is better than scrap, but I'd rather she remained a storage boat here. Seeing this brings back memories of being aboard her in Hamilton just over a month ago.

Fantastic photo, you couldn't have asked for more perfect weather.
