Description:
Anchored in Margate Roads, on a rather choppy 18/6/83. A little blurry perhaps, but with a 200 m lens plus a 2x converter, in the wind without the aid of a tripod, I was surprised it came out as well as it did. It's all so easy now with my 12x zoom image-stabilised FZ3.

14,948 grt, built 1968.

Yep, now we've got the cameras that can do so much we don't have the ships like this to point them at, sadly. I'm only glad that the technological progress has allowed us to scan the oldies in and share them like this. Great shot Phil... and yes I do know about hand holding a manual focus long tom with a 2x converter in a howling gale. Great stuff :-)
Regards
John J.
