I stood by the Shipping Tug Station and could see the Svitzer Intrepid leaving her berth and heading upriver at Felixstowe to Trinity Terminal, the last crane arms had gone up and it just needed to get a line on to The Maersk Salalah.

This was all happening at the other end of the port some 2.5 miles away, The Salalah weighs in at over 100000 Tons and has a length of one fifth of a mile, she really is a monster, fortunately the tide was very low and I was able to get down to the tideline to capture her from about 1.5 miles away
