Fogbound in St. Johns, Newfoundland

Fogbound in St. Johns, Newfoundland
Best enlarged

The departure of the P&O cruise ship Grand Princess was delayed for several hours when fog rolled in off the Atlantic to smother the 'Narrows", the only entrance to St. John's Harbour, a narrow channel between the Southside and Signal hills. It has a least depth of 11 metres and at its narrowest point near Chain Rock is 61 metres wide. The ship has a beam of 36 metres and a draught of nearly 8 metres. I can think of many worse places and circumstances in which to be fogbound!

Doug Shepherd club has replied to Jeff Farley club
Many thanks for your kind words Jeff. I must admit I was quite happy with the result, given that it was taken hand-held at 1/8 second. Hands were a bit more steady back then;-)
