Semi-Sinking Seacat in Liverpool

Bit of photo-journalism today. On Saturday there was a crash between 2 large ships on the Mersey. It was very very foggy but surely they have some form of device telling them the location of other ships on the Mersey. I would have gone out on Saturday but I couldn’t see across the road, so I went out on Sunday. It was a nice sunny day and I was able to get some shots of the semi-sunk Seacat. Not much happened while I was there. I was expecting them to start off-loading the 50 cars still stuck on board. I had to do some work on most of these shots to remove the annoying haze that was around from yesterday’s fog.
