Hi John,

It certainly worked for you, that is not the easiest of locations for photography, well done, it is always nice to see a Blue Star reefer.

Regards Ken

Thanks Matt,
that picture was taken from a LONG way away on the Isle of Grain opposite Sheerness with an old Vivitar 210mm lens and 2x teleconvertor. Sometimes it worked 8-)
