I was wondering if anyone would question the location from where the photo was taken? :thumright

Was quite tricky catching the camera after I threw it in the air to get the photo !!

Seriously though, there is a 'little red boat' anchored out there (S.A. Agulhas) - my old man, is the 'old man' onboard and he sent me the photo.

Which SA Agulhas? 1 or 2?

This is the Agulhas 1

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S._A._Agul ... d_new_role

The S.A. Agulhas retired from polar supply missions in March 2012, when its replacement, S. A. Agulhas II, arrived. The Oceans and Coasts Branch of the Department of Environmental Affairs announced in 2011 that several other government agencies had requested the vessel's transfer, noting that, unlike the new vessel, the first was not designed to carry out scientific research, just icebreaking and that the capability to perform scientific research had been added later.

In July 2012 the S. A. Agulhas was recommissioned as a training ship operated by the South African Maritime Safety Authority, the ship will continue to provide facilities for scientific research while training up to seventy merchant marine cadets.

Interesting formation. Looks like someone shaved off the peak. Great pic by the way, Ringalatus. What camera are you using?

Taken by my daughter, officer on Maersk Lota anchored off Robben Island waiting to dock. Camera was Fujifilm Mirrorless XT 20. Lens I'm not too sure but could be 18 to 55mm.
