    Touche. One of these days we're going to get arrested for industrial espionage or for having too much snow down our necks or in our boots. Speaking of difficult access - we drove by your silo a short while back (South West of Peterborough, East of 115) - talk about deja vue. We decided to forgo the thistles LOL.

    Actually, Michael, I was separated from this scene by a chain link fence and barbed wire. Fortunately, a high snowbank allowed me access to shoot over the fence and under the wire. There are at least five ships in this shot so I considered the composition might be a negative but unfortunately, I had no way to move for a different angle.

    I'm a sucker for ships but only wish I could see more of one ship. I can guess your observation points were obstructed. I like the cold feeling and can almost smell the ships lying in wait for spring.

    Thanks, fc. I've looked at this on a couple of monitors and only my recently HQ one really lets the dynamic range pop. I find a majestic beauty in these ships and the men who work them. I'd love to hear more about your stay in Toronto in '97.

    Having had my ship wintered in Toronto in 1997 can feel the cold etc of the shot. This gives the isolation of the port and the lack of movement.
Even the tag for the site brings a sense of belonging.
