It amazes me that something this large can float.

That's an amazing photo. It looks so top heavy as if it could tip over in a storm!

Gunn said...

That looks HEAVY!

Halcyon said...

Hmmm... why the name change? Did something happen?

Dina said...

Your photo is awesome. How does such a ship stay afloat, anyway?!

These always look so top heavy. They must be difficult in stormy weather.

Fine photo of this outbound freighter. I think the cheese I ordered is in the container on the lower left.

Amazing photo, VP !
Looks like it is overloaded with empty boxes ? (judging by the waterline)

Couldn't they have taken just one more container?

Looks small like that but it's probably huge!

Nice colored cargo, but there is a very lot of things.
I love this image.

I know nothing about ships, but the idea that this container ship can stay afloat without tipping over is hard for me to believe.

Ah, so they are empty?!
