    After a disappointment of a cloudy eclipse - I was rewarded with a Gerry in town. Hobart residents call the creeping mist that comes down the river Derwent - Bridge-water Gerry.

    I called my first shot 'Right Down the Line' after a Gerry Rafferty song.

    A shot taken in Sandy Bay showing the soft Gerry against the hard edged erosion of a drain on the Sandy Bay Beach.

    Ocean Shield in her new midnight blue colour against a soupy autumn Hobart Fog.

    Australian Defence Vessel (ADV) Ocean Shield is a ship of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Ordered by DOF Subsea as the offshore support vessel MSV Skandi Bergen, the ship was laid down by STX OSV. During construction, the vessel was sold to the RAN in March 2012. Renamed Ocean Shield, the ship entered service in June 2012 as a civilian-crewed humanitarian and disaster relief vessel, operating in support of the RAN's amphibious warfare vessels.[1] In 2016, after the Canberra-class landing helicopter dock ships (LHDs) enter service, Ocean Shield will be transferred to the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service to replace sister ship Ocean Protector.

    A lovely trio Jeff. I particularly like the colour and textures of your first image and the composition of the following two.
