Next up is the Herbert C. Jackson. I really shouldn't call her to the Bridge Killer because it was a killing in self defense but still, she held her own.
One of the things I like about taking pictures from the end of Belle Isle is that you get a chance to see the ships from a ways out. They generally work their way back and forth until they reach the channel.
Once they get close enough, you have a chance for a pretty clean front shot. Especially if you a decent sized lens.
Like this. Some ships give off a pretty nice face. The Jackson is one of them.
But the frontal shot doesn't last for long, because she is in the channel. Still, the 3/4's view is pretty nice.
Again, you get a pretty clean one from Belle Isle.
I left my bigger lens on for some shots of her pilothouse. I was hoping to get a shot of her patch.
You can kind of make it out to the upper side of her anchor.
A shot of her deckhouse.
Another shot of her front.
Here you can definately make it out. In this shot it is right above and to the right of her anchor. It doesn't look that bad from a distance.
And then her profile. I think she cuts a really nice profile.
