Hi Frederik & Gerda,
superb series of shots of this one. Such a shame that a tragedy was about to unfold on her decks so soon after.
I am a land-based shipping enthusiast, but must never forget the dangers that seafarers face in their everyday lives. My respect goes to all of them.

It's such a tragedy that they lost two crew members today (11 November 2006), when the ship hit horrendous seas after departing Scapa Flow, Orkney, bound for Houston, Texas.
BTW, it looks like the BBC are using one of your pictures@
