Calum says "The Secdo rig 706, looking strangely truncated with her top works removed is loaded onto the Mighty Servant 1 for a voyage to the Black Sea, as the Cromarty Rose approaches the slip. She is having a major upgrade in the Ukraine.
I was perplexed as to why she would come to Scotland for "stripping down" before going to a shipyard in the Black Sea. Then I realised that she would have to pass under Bridges in Istanbul."
The picture was taken in the Cromarty Firth in Scotland, and the Cromarty Rose in the foreground is the local car ferry.
