This post and this photo could not have happened without the power of Twitter. Sunday evening I was browsing the Twitter feed on my @shanesphoto feed and I noticed a few tweets about the Stavros S Niarchos which was berthed in Waterford over the weekend. One of these mentioned that the Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos would be passing through Dunmore East around 9pm. That was enough, camera bag into the car and off to Dunmore East.
Patiently awaiting the view of the Stavros S Niarchos eventually it was spotted coming towards the open ocean. The wind was really picking up and it gave an awesome sight as it approached.
The Stavros S Niarchos passed Hook Head around 8:35pm at which time I hurried back to the car, cold but very happy having seen this ship and knowing the SDcard had a few good shots on it!
