Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro container ship, IMO 9357963, port of Livorno

Rio de Janeiro container ship, IMO 9357963, port of Livorno
As usual, the 286-meter passing ship dwarfed the pilot boat.

That first shot is amazing. One to be framed and hung on a wall.

That ship looks lightly loaded. Great photos with lots of red color.
