Trawling through the archives I came across this shot of a light ship, a mobile lighthouse !
Now docked in the Marina in Hull it used to be stationed on the sandbanks at the mouth of the river Humber.
Taken in summer on a lovely sunny day.

Thanks for stopping to look and for your continued support.

The Spurn lightship; I remember when it was painted red. It seems to have been always here in the dock Annette, probably replaced by the lighthouse.
I was born in Hull and we used to go and look at the trawlers in Queens dock. There was also a fireboat which fascinated me. All gone now.
Lovely reminder

I was going to express my surprise that it was black, then I read Clive's comment about the fact it used to be red! Are they renovating it? Is it still in use?
You've caught it well, I love the reflections in the still water. Summer............what's that?! Wink

Spurn Lightship, built in 1927 served for 50 years as a navigational aid at the mouth of the River Humber. Now a museum she is open to the public April to September. As far as I recall she has always been black, maybe red primer when refurbished!!
PS nice shot, maybe a bit more angle and reflection would have improved it, also wait 'til yellow truck had passed!!!!

Curiously, despite the black bulk of the ship this contrives to be a colourful image. I, too, always thought lightships were red (I have seen Calshot Spit and Goodwin) - am I imagining the colour while seeing black?
