Hi Kelvin

Cheers........Had the weather forecast been correct, these shots would have been much better, it shone here for about 10 seconds and having given up, I suddenly had to grab the camera again and shoot. So I chased her up to Marchwood, and then again only got hazy sun on her. Still, its a record. By the way the first of the new CMA CGMs (America) is due on Friday, but don't rush, she's down for 0100 arrival

Nice one Allan,
I managed to spot the Rio Grande and the Zim Xiamen.
And then they were gone!
