Beyond the Horizon

Meloria islets, FSRU Toscana, IMO 9253284, off Livorno coast
We have already seen that the “FSRU Toscana” is a huge Floating Storage Regasification Unit anchored 22 km off the Tuscan coast. You do not see her from the coastline, because the ship is beyond the horizon at sea level, but you can easily spot her from the 300 meters of the hill of Montenero. The quality of the image is really lousy, just keep in mind that the thing is 22 km away...

Considering she's that far off, your image is quite impressive!

Amazing resolution considering the distance.

Such eyesores.

I'd say you did very well...that's a long way to shoot and there are so many variables to consider! Montenero must be quite a hill ...
