Saturday Photohunt - Anything


A few years ago a ship was grounded in Swansea Bay. Because the tide goes out a very long way, we were able to walk out to the ship but I didn't want to get any closer: it was a bit big and scary! I mean, what stops it from falling over?

I have published this photo before but not in Photohunters and not for a couple of years so I think it will be acceptable.

I'm glad you are able to show the comparison of a person to a ship. The ship is enormous. I agree it is wise not to get too near it.

Dragonstar said...

I wouldn't go nearer either - probably safe enough, but with my luck ....
Incredible shot Liz!

Wow, what an amazing shot with the HUGE ship and small person there... I've been around a lot of ships (Navy) but never did one appear that large to me!

julie said...

This looks like a wonderful place to explore. But yeah, not when one doesn't know if its gonna tip over :)

Have a great day!

jams o donnell said...

Wow Liz that is an impresive sight. I'm amazed nobody has tried to refloat or salvage it

philos said...

Wow! That is humongous! Great photo Liz! Is that a Russian ship or something?

Btw, thanks for visiting my photohunt entry and welcoming me hehe... Happy Mother's Day! :)

Siani said...

Great shot, Liz - you're a braver woman than me. I'd have stayed on the prom. I think I remember that ship. Didn't its pilot mistake some traffic lights at West Cross for the lights at the entrance to the docks? Hope you're having a lovely weekend, and that George hasn't eaten anything else he shouldn't have.

leslie said...

Sheesh! I'm with you! What DOES keep that thing upright?

Colin Campbell said...

Great photo. This reminds me of walking out on the tarmac to board 747s back to Singapore at the old airport in Kuala Lumpur. You would walk around the plane and board using stairs. Usually boarding was by air bridge, but not there.
