Hi Nick

I like this picture very much.

I do wonder who it would be aimed at...
Perhaps might come int action again after Brexit.

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend

Took a moment to take this in Nick. Even though I have been to Gib, I can't remember seeing this beauty. Great capture.

Belated HFF, enjoy the weekend. Herb

Hi Herb

It is difficult to take all of Gibraltar in in one day, I suspect. We just spent a few hours there one day.

Thanks for your good wishes ~ Hanwe

she made me laugh too Tanja. Your idea to get the gun to shoot confetti is an excellent one. My next Gibraltar image will be of a wedding :)

... a photo of history (late 1800's arms race -- the Wiki link is a great inclusion; I had no idea ... another instance of "Encyclopedia Ipernity")

(hmm, one of the pics in the Wikipedia article seemed to indicate that muzzle loading on the Italian battleships was initiated outside the turret -- that can't be very safe or effective in combat; the loaders easily become casualties)

Yes, I would not have liked to have any part to play in operating these monster guns.

Whilst I have visited Malta on several occasions I cannot recall seeing their guns, where as I only visited Gibraltar for half a day and spotted this one.
