Pilot Boat by onewing

Pilot Boat

Another photo from our day in Newcastle. I spotted the pilot boat taking the pilot out to one of the ships. He steers the huge container and coal ships in and out through the heads, then the pilot boat picks him up again. Sometimes he is taken out to the ships by helicopter if the weather is rough.

I think he must have forgotten something this day though because he set off out to a ship, then did a U turn and came back and off again a few minutes later.

As it was such a grey day I decided to play about with selective colouring to highlight the boat.
