Yeah, the cold fingers can be a problem. Especially for me, when I go out in 15 degree (F) weather and forget gloves. Great shot, Marc.

Merci, thanks everone for your positive comments. Nothing beats good early morning lighting condtions to photograph ships here in winter; except for cold fingers naturally...

Regards to all,

Oh thanx a lot for this pic. This ship should arrive tomorrow here in Port-Alfred. I will try to catch good picture of her too.

Good picture by the way. :)
