    Karm: is that boom (?) part of Big Bertha or in the background?

    Hi Bruce, I sort of assumed it's not.

    Certainly an unusual looking boat. I assume it was constructed for a specific purpose.

    Geoff, can't help you on this one. I was across the harbor when I took the picture. if I could have peeked into the boats interior I might have been able to discern the ship's purpose. My imagination connects the ship with the sand piles behind it. However, I don't think the two are linked.

    Yes, I can't quite place it as a dredger nor a sand movement vessel. Although I suppose it could be used for transporting men and equipment between sites.

    Certainly plenty of detail in this image.

    Hi Karm.

    Certainly is an unusual boat design. The photo is a very busy with piles of iron ore or coal or something, wires, towers, trucks, etc to distract the eye. I know you couldn't move those things. I do like the various tones that you captured. There is a lot of depth in the ore (coal or whatever) piles because of the shadows.

    Hi Ken. The only "busy" part of the image that I don't like is the car. I think everything else goes together as a package: a working ship in a small harbor with all that entails.
