Another shot of the dry docks at Falmouth in Cornwall UK. This is the same dock as the previously posted photo of it but six months later

What a gorgeous boat... I have always wanted to go on one of these big ships once in my life... but being on a ship that long with all those men... ahhh no! And yep... I will even do some of the work...

Wonder why, what looks like a fully laden ship is doing in dry dock ? Great shot grouser .

@dj.tigersprout: I'm up on a steep hill directly above the docks that gives a commanding view over the area.

Terrific shot of the dock, the sharpness is excellent. I think the local rat population would appreciate those ropes.

I've never been to Falmouth. I shall make a point of visiting next time I'm in that area. Great photo.

Jeff has posed the question that came into my mind but this is a very 'involving' shot that makes one think of such things! I like it.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks Ronnie. It puzzled me too. I could only assume that the containers were empty and not worth the hassle of removing.
