    Ahoy!

    Gibraltar was damned interesting for shipping and photo opportunities. This is the 260,000 ton Centennial Jewel taken smack-bang from the stern. Weather was clear, but very hazy.

    To get an idea how big this ship is, I've also posted a side view image from quite a distance away.

    Just for those interested in such matters, I used an Olympus E500 with the kit 40-150mm lens. These are dirt cheap now (camera and lens kits), and with the x2 crop factor, would make a very good entry into dSLR at not a lot of money.

    Nice photo - did you board and get them to walk the plank?
