Have your say

THERE’S no need to adjust your vision — this photograph really is a bit lop-sided.

But it still took a fair bit of skill, considering it was taken during some of the worst sea states possible.

Royal Navy photographer LA(Phot) Jay Allen snapped this photograph from on board the navy’s ice patrol ship HMS Protector as heavy winds and waves smashed against the ship.

The ship endured winds gusting at more than 75mph to create the incredibly stormy seas. She is currently en route to Antarctica to carry on with her usual patrols and surveying of the frozen continent.
