Each year I look forward to seeing the Flying Focus ‘Gale Warning’ calendar.
This always features dramatic photographs taken from the air of ships in very heavy weather. In pretty awful weather when many pilots would be staying on land, Flying focus’ heavy duty Cessna Skymaster takes to the air to capture these outstanding images. They are truly awesome!
This year, 2016, Flying Focus also has another calendar ‘Flying Focus Lighthouse Calendar’ featuring lighthouses from around Europe with some truly outstanding shots. The company also publish books on offshore oil & gas, shipping including tugs and workboats. All products can be ordered through the Flying Focus website www.flyingfocus.ne
On a cold wintry night in the warmth of my home, and a good single malt in my hand, I flick through these ‘Gale Warning’ shots and think about mariners at sea in these conditions and give thanks that my own seagoing days are over.
