This was taken at sunset in the Autumn with a long exposure. The water in the harbour was the only thing moving and so it felt right to stop it with a slow shutter speed to make it fit in with everything else around. There were rowing crews practising along the harbour at the time, so I suppose something else was moving.
The SS Great Britain was the world's first steam powered passenger liner and was the first to be powered by screw propeller. After several unprofitable journeys to America she carried emigrants to Australia, troops to the Crimea and India and Welsh coal as a sailing ship. I thought that sounded like she was a failure, but I was very wrong: in her lifetime she clocked up over one million sea miles.
