Thank you, gentlemen,

It was the worst possible photo conditions. The storm was so strong it was impossible to stand up. Furthermore I had to point the lens through a fence

Some unfortunate people with long wintercoats got caught by the wind and flew away over the moutain

To the left was a really long vessel with a tug at each side. I wanted but it would've been impossible to to catch the whole scenery

Some conclusions can be drawn, I think, by this crop of the same picture file

Regards

Torgny

Thumbs up

Wow, stunning pic! That's quite a spacey-looking tug with those huge wheelhouse windows and those odd 'ears'. I like it.

Than you Ordo, toshi and Kelly,

for viewing and the comments. The picture was taken at 320mm (35mm equivalent), max for a 70-200, on a house with APS-C sensor.

Torgny

Kelly, suppose you like tug boats. The one above is called in from somewhere to assist. Never seen it before. Our own look like this. They are named after ancient Nordic gods. Oden - Wodan - Onsdag (Wednesday)

Very impressive tugs. Really like photo # 1...very dynamic scene. I live in the western part of Canada on the prairies so a tug is an unusual sight for me.

Those are pretty modern tugs. Somebody has a good business going.
