    What happens to the ferry that made it ran aground? Interesting, it still stood straight after most of its hull was on the ground.

    French Navy frigate Latouche-Treville in heavy seas.




    Incredible photography...and you know that things had to be very well battened down on that frigate during those heavy seas.
