Default Tugging Chief...

The rather burly "Voe Chief" drags a floating crane into Port Penrhyn....

# 1...best by far, IMO. Like the angle and the view from the bow mooring rope.

Simon,

Heavy work, great pictures radiating masculinity. I like them, a place I'd like to spend some time. Many feet have walked that dock

Thanks Torgny- many feet have indeed walked this dock- and a 100 years ago you'd barely be able to move there,with Penrhyn slate exporting to all corners of the globe.
Sadly it's a bit quieter now....!!
