Big ship sails into the river Mersey watched over by the Ironmen of Crosby

In shot is the 22,000 tonne Panama registered cargo vessel 'Sv Nikolay'.

Don’t really know if you would describe this as a big ship... but I would, it did look to be large and lightly laden riding high in the water, the pooled water left by the leaving tide, left a mirrored surface for reflection, and the Ironmen looked on as to greet the ship into the river Mersey.

I quite liked the painted feel to the cloud backdrop here, I think these would have been perfect light and conditions to have seen tall ships in, oh well the less romantic bulk cargo ship will have to do.

 

If you want to track ships, this makes it easy, you can see where this ship is now, and what its doing...
