Canon EOS 1100D Photo #7 Ships

I was lucky enough to be allowed onto my Uncle's tug boat back in July this year. He works for the Dover Harbour Board, and regularly gets called out to help ships into the harbour, a mixture of cargo ships and cruise liners. On this day, I went on his tug boat, DHB Doughty to assist this medium size cargo ship, the Esmeralda, registered in Valetta, Malta. I believe she was carrying a shipment of bananas from the South American continent, destined for our supermarkets. Esmeralda is a reefer, built in 1999, and has a gross tonnage of 10,532. and a length of 152m. She operates for Seatrade. I was quite pleased how this shot came out, considering it was getting very dark. Fortunately the whole operation went by successfully without any mishaps.
