I noticed yesterday, that they were moving the oil platform jacket that has been under construction for ages. Today I got chance to get as close as possible. I only had my 18-55 lens and no wide angle adapter, so all I could do was create this composite shot from two, taken through a gap in the fence. Normally I can wander right around the quay side, but obviously the health and safety folk have been bumping their gums over this one:

The jacket is about 2/3 of the way onto the transit barge:

Bloomin 'eck - it's a whopper. Looks well dodgy balanced on that ship.
