Met up with Sho,Fishbrain & tweek and headed off to the docklands (praying for a clear dry night) ...

The weather was the total opposite, raining, cloudy and miserable which made photography a difficult task but hey hoe on we go... After a treck through an urban jungle of sorts we hit the cameras (its been a week of cameras ) erm what to do ??

HMS Bronington (M1115)


HMS Bronington is a Ton-class minesweeper of the Royal Navy, launched on 19 March 1953. This mahogany-hulled minesweeper is one of the last of the "wooden walls" (wooden-hulled naval vessels).

After being decommissioned from service, the ship was purchased in January 1989 by the Bronington Trust, a registered charity, whose patronCharles, Prince of Wales commanded this vessel in 1976.

For some time, the ship was berthed in the historic Manchester Ship Canal at Trafford Park, Greater Manchester, England. In 2002, she became part of the collection of the Warship Preservation Trust.

Thanks for sharing.
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.

I've got the brain of a four year old. I'll bet he was glad to be rid of it.

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Great stuff and a huge shock to see some none HDR images from you hehe

Thank you for the normal shots of this place because I never did mushrooms in my youth or acid come to think of it which is probably why I'm not always keen on some HDR :D
