Thanks Ken

Very good photo from that distance.
Ken Smith on Apr 22, 2011 12:38 (3 years ago)
Many thanks John, Yes, I understand she was the biggest to date particularly on that berth which has only recently opened up.

I think Derek is entering the Marathon next year after that jaunt.

Kind regards
Ken

Hi Chris, the distance is approx 2.5 to 3 miles and in this case I don't feel a polarising filter would be of much help due to the distance involved.

It was just a bad day due the weather, normally it is not a problem.

Kind regards
Ken

I presume a long range telephoto shot, how far are you from the ship ?

For mist maybe a polarising filter would help.

Many thanks Derek, it is my pleasure to share with you and the members, it was certainly a long drive on the day with the A2 being closed both ways for most of the day due to a serious accident, local knowledge came into play.

Kind regards
Ken

Thanks ken,

For all your efforts in getting photos of these giants at Isle of Grain. Great shots and a valuable record for all to enjoy. Well done mate, I know its a long drive for you to get these.

Kind regards
Derek

Excellent effort considering the conditons Ken. I believe she is the biggest there yet. I was sitting in a City pub with Derek & Phil that evening... we thought you'd probably have gone down there to catch it :-)
Best Regards
John J.

Many thanks Ian, I have also sent you a pm.

Kind regards

No problem John, I was looking out for you, I realised that it was not going to improve and the sun was going round all the time, it was annoying that the mist was so low and affecting the ship, the tops of the Power Station chimneys were in bright sunlight.

Kind regards
Ken
John Grace on Apr 21, 2011 18:56 (3 years ago)
Thanks for capturing this one Ken. By the time I could get there it was so humid that not much of the vessel could be seen. Regards,
John

Well done Ken even thought the mist didn't help have sent you a PM.

Regards
Ian
