PICK THE ODD ONE OUT.......! by

Maybe I should have entitled this photograph ’ Morrison’s at Barrow-in-Furness !’ Seriously, this is just a selection of vessels seen in the harbour at the launching of submarine ’ Astute ’ at Barrow-in-Furness in the Lake District, Cumbria, England in 2007.

Depicted are: Two inshore patrol boats from the Royal Navy, the ’ Grand Turk ’ a replica of an old East Indiaman formerly a vessel engaged in trade with India and a pair of local tugs.

FUJI S5000 at 20mm, 1/210, f/3.2, iso 200, mode manual.

    I like the pairing of the two groups, almost designed to make the Grand Turk stand out

  • You might be right on the pairings Kala – there seemed to be a few odd ones that week, across the basin was an old de-commissioned diesel submarine and the old frigate ’ Northumberland,’ The Grand Turk was most interesting to study with the crew all dressed in authentic costume !

    Beautifully captured Roy… lovely lighting, colours and reflections

  • Many thanks Andrea – they all looked so right there. For the wettest place in England, we had a spectacular week of lovely weather in Cumbria.

    Well spotted and photographed Roy – but where’s the Astute gone? Don’t tell me she slipped under the water when no one was looking?
    Cheers
    Peter

  • Thank you kindly Peter – ’ Astute ’ a bit of an unlucky submarine, that one. At the launching Heather shook hands with Camilla, I think this is where it all started then the gizmo that lowered Astute into the water failed and it was perched up there for about a week. Then, they had a fire in the conning tower, followed by a grounding up in Scotland and to top if off, one of the ratings shot an Officer ! Not a happy ship !

    Sounds like it was jinxed from the start. We had an aircraft carrier (HMAS Melbourne) with a reputation for constantly crashing in to other ships! My youngest son served on her for a couple of years up to the time she was de-commissioned.
    Cheers

  • Thanks Peter – yes I remember the ’ Melbourne ’ I was actually around the Aussie coast when she hit a destroyer. Pleased your son completed a successful tour !

    That’s a cracking shot Roy,and you’ve managed to catch where i go shopping..nice one

  • Thank you kind sir – we shopped at Asda while in Barrow ! These vessels appealed, being tied up in pairs, ahead and astern of the Grand Turk.

    – Roy Massicks

  • Thank you also for the favourite – much appreciated ! Is it going into your Cumbrian GPS, a series of photographs of where you shop stuck to the dashboard to remind you where to go……?
