Thank you my friends for your kind comments.

Actually this is lucky shot because of all that cloud around with the sun trying to poke through the fast moving breaks. Holding a camera steady while standing in 50+ knot winds is no mean feat!

We've been having very mild temps lately which melted quite a bit of the snow already on the ground and as a result all the ice in the main shipping channel has disappeared. The gale force winds signaled a cold front passing through our area which should bring us weather more associated with January than March.
At least I was content to finally be able to photograph a ship in good light something I had not been able to do in the last two weeks...
