Description

HMS Warrior

HMS Warrior was the name ship of her class of two armoured frigates built for the Royal Navy in 1859–61. She and her sister ship HMS Black Prince were the first armour-plated, iron-hulled warships; they were built in response to the first ironclad ocean-going warship, the wooden-hulled French ironclad Gloire launched in 1859. Warrior spent her active career with the Channel Fleet and was hulked in 1883 after having been in 1st class reserve since 1875. She served as a storeship and depot ship before she was assigned to Royal Navy's torpedo training school in 1904. The ship was converted into a floating oil jetty in 1927 and remained in that role until 1979 when restoration began. Listed as part of the National Historic Fleet, she is now a museum ship in Portsmouth, England.

Interesting subject with strong colours and sky. The lines in the sky mirror the ropes on the foreground boat.
