HMS Mersey in Liverpool

I spent about an hour getting photos of HMS Mersey yesterday. The light was harsh and annoying so pretty much most of the images were rubbish. I tried to HDR some and failed because the light wasn’t very good. This was pretty much the last image I took and it worked. I wanted a WW2 war film feel to it. I wanted it to look as if had been photographed by Chambre-Hardman in the 40s.

    come rain (turbulent skies) or shine (sparkiling sea)the navy is always there. Great shot mate. Pity we can’t get so close to warships over here.

  5. I was helping out with ships open to visitors on HMS Mersey then. A really great picture!
