One of the early photographs I took when I bought my first digital camera
I was out on Southampton Water on one of the University’s Oceanographic vessels with some colleagues as part of the ‘Future Leaders’ Group’ program. A bit of team bonding. Our trip took us over the Isle of White, and we paused mid-Solent to try out the hydrophones (an interesting experience for those not used to small vessels in a rough sea).
I guess I should be thankful for this picture, if I hadn’t managed to take a decent picture early on, I might not have become enthralled with photography again.
Fawley Oil Refinery, Southampton Water, Hampshire, UK.
Update: January 2017. I reviewed and re-edited this picture.Copyright © 2006 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
