I like the ship silhouetted against the early morning sky. A refreshingly different treatment for images of HM ships transiting the Sound.

Nice shot.

I notice that the anchor hasn't been wound in fully...is that normal?

Thanks for the comments.

As for the anchor, I'm not sure why it's like that as usually it's wound in.

Odd that a warship should look so tranquil, but it does. Nice capture.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

The anchor is always eased out ready to let go in a hurry when warships are transiting confined or shallow water. Known as a seaman-like precaution.
