It almost looks like there is another smaller white ship sitting on top of that big load. Great picture!

The centre of gravity seems so high here that you would think it would topple over! ;-)

It looks overloaded!

Can't you must imagine one of these in a great gale?!

I wonder what they are carrying.

I like this. Actually to me it is quite unique to see this.

Looks pretty calm and under control here at port side. Of course, rough seas is another issue.

That is amazing. I'm with the others. I think it would sink!

For some odd reason (zoom effect?) it looks small! Superb photo.

VP said...

You are right, probably it's the tug almost in foreground...

It almost doesn't seem possible that the ship wouldn't sink VP, that's the power of buoyancy for you!

Yikes! It is astonishing how much freight can be loaded onto just one vessel.
