Well done , obviously you know how to get the best from your camera , plus working on the Pilot boat is a great advantage to getting up close to the ships , excellent photography .

Now she's really riding the waves. Great set of photos, Chris!

Perfect conditions, heavy sea and sun.

Still certain body parts twitched when we went over to 40 degrees while the pilots were boarding.

I think that shot shows pretty well how little looks even big ships in a rough water quite different than when we see same ships anchored or berthed wharf.
Thanks to share Chris, greetings, Robert08
