It's just over a year since I last uploaded to Ephotozine. I haven't done much photography in that time but last month I had the opportunity to photograph an oil rig being tugged in the Cromarty Firth, so I thought this would be a good time to update my portfolio.

The Sedco 712 has been at anchor in the Cromarty Firth for the past four years, last month it was moved to the dock at Invergordon. The conditions were a bit overcast and grey, not ideal photography weather, the only consolation being it wasn't raining and the firth was fairly calm' This photo shows the 80 metre long anchor vessel Normand Neptun towing the massive rig towards Invergordon

More info can be found on my blog Here

All work on this image has been done in Lightroom, even to the point of exporting the ephoto size.

Good to see you back.

These 'tugs' are massive ........not what I grew up thinking of a tug.

They are quite something when you see them 'in the flesh'! Used to live up there & been back several times and they still look impressive. I like the composition of the picture with the 3 elements.

Yes, just enormous when up close, the small vessel between the rig and the large tug is the ports own tug.
