Sea Shepherd Flag

The Sea Shepherd flag on the back of the Bob Barker vessel as it resupplies in Wellington before heading south to link up with the Steve Irwin to protest against whaling in the southern ocean.

I have to say that I was pretty impressed by this ship, unfortunatley it was too big to get a shot on the Rollei but I took one on my XA3 (still to be processed). It looked a lot like some of the NZ navy vessels that were in port earlier in the year.

In The Navy

Last weekend the New Zealand Navy was in Wellington port to present their colours to the parliament for their 70th anniversary (yes our Navy is only 70 years old). All the ships except one on active duty were there and although there is only seven in the fleet it still made for a rather impressive display.

The ships were all open to the public but I didnt get a chance to go and have a look.

This image was taken just after they had docked…

Ships Upon The Water

Spotted this ship being led into harbor by Tug boats on a recent “Drive by Shooting” trip with Cunningvision. It turned out that there were hardly anyone around to take images  of so we settled on capturing the ship before moving on…
