The Royal Navy is on point when it comes to photography lately.
For example, look at this long-exposure shot of the Type 23 Duke-class frigate HMS Argyll (F231) during a Night GUNEX as part of the recent Bersama Lima 18 exercise in the Western Pacific letting loose a star shell from her BAE 4.5 inch Mk 8 naval gun.
Her motto: Ne Obliviscaris, “Lest We Forget” and she is the third ship to carry the name in the RN since 1715.
Commissioned in 1991, the 27-year old Argyll is the oldest frigate in HMs fleet ever since HMS Cornwall, the last Type 22 frigate, retired from service on 30 June 2011 as her slightly older classmates Norfolk and Marlborough were sold to Chile in 2007-08.
But she can still rock.
