Black & White in Colour 1: HMS Warrior

This is the first in my new series of black & white scenes photographed in colour.

In 2013, I took these photos of HMS Warrior, Britain’s first iron-hulled, armoured warship.

Launched in 1860, Warrior was the pride of Queen Victoria’s fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete.

Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more.

  1. I love the black and white pictures in colour. Quite striking. When I saw “black and white” I thought, oh no, another one to press a button and monochrome a few coloured photos. But these are excellent!
