Well well! Today was the day of the BBC Anglia. Took some shots of her sister, the bbc mexico once, and all of them got deleted from shipspotting. Not these, i hope. The goddamn pilot-list tricked me again. Thought she was to dock 13:00 in larvik. No, she was to take pilot 13:00. So it was an hour to wait. I am used to waiting. But then i saw her coming, took ages to sail into Larvik.
I had in mind the tricks people on our site learned me. The light played a trick on me today, but this shot i really think turned out ok.
The good photographers onboard seem to make the ship... I dont know, live in the shot. For the first time i think i captured a ship.
