VICTORY by ScarredWolfphoto VICTORY by ScarredWolfphoto
HMS Victory is a first rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, started in 1759 and launched in 1765, most famous as Lord Nelson's flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar.

HMS Victory is still in commission as the flagship of the Second Sea Lord in his role as Commander in Chief of the Royal Navy's Home Command (CINCNAVHOME). She is the oldest commissioned warship in the world, although the USS Constitution, launched 30 years later, is the oldest commissioned warship still afloat. Victory attracts around 350,000 visitors per year in her role as a museum ship in dry dock, Portsmouth, England.

Unusual angle and lighting and monchromatic pallette, I like it. HMS Victory is towering magnificently over us and the town she guards. It could be a photo from back in time.
