Thank you Sinisa, nice to hear you liked the shot, it was a bit difficult to take it, thick forests around the place where I finally got the photo and the ice is getting too thin so it was impossible to get any closer the ship, used 500 mm zoom for this...

Sorry to hear you had bad luck with her at Split :-(
