We went to St Kilda for dinner last night and the sunset was spectacular. I managed to fire off a couple of shots with the Spirit of Tasmania in the foreground. Den and I took the van on this ship a few years ago and went to Tasmania for a week. It's a huge ship. This shot is straight out of camera except for correcting the horizon in Lightroom.
Here's some information from www.spiritoftasmania.com.au/:
Spirit of Tasmania I and II were built in 1998 by Kvaerner Masa-Yards in Finland. They have a displacement weight of almost 30,000 tonnes and a length of 194.3 metres.
Spirit of Tasmania I and II cross Bass Strait at a cruising speed of 27 knots which is the equivalent of 50 kilometres per hour. The 429 kilometre voyage across Bass Strait is roughly twice the distance by road between Devonport and Strahan, on Tasmania’s west coast.
Stretched end-to-end, the vehicle lanes on each ship would be almost two kilometres long!
