As an old seaman( navy long time ago) I sailed on a Battle Cruiser . I also know how big a Carrier is. Many times we exercised with the US navy in the Mediterranean and we came a side the Carriers .We where (looked)realy small than.

You made an excelent shot off an very long ship

The size of these ships is truly incredible. I saw the Iwo Jima once, which is not a big carrier by American standards, it was huge. You did well to capture the whole ship.

Thanks !!!!

Thank you Phil !!! Couldn't have done it without a wide angle lens, my intentions was to get a shot from the broad side of the ship but the pier directly before where the ship is birthed is under construction and restricted right now, so I took it from the most logical position available.
