Photo Details
Photographer:Magogman [View profile]Title:NYK RIGELAdded:Jan 05, 2010
Photo Category: Containerships built 2001-2010
The nearly new (delivered May, 2009) NYK Rigel transits to sea through the lower Chesapeake Bay having departed the Norfolk, Virginia/Hampton Roads area about an hour previous. Early morning, tide going out, August 6, 2009. The extensive and very strong overnight thunderstorms have washed the haze and particulate matter out of the atmosphere giving a sharp view of this new ship even though it is a dark and cloudy day. 4922 TEU (listed as 4800 on its owner's fleet list), GRT 55,534t, Panama flag. I could not find any photos of this containership on this site so these may be the first photos of her posted.

Hey, well yes most people go South, but I say against cold you can always wear something, but what can you do against heat ? Nothing ! Getting trapped in ice was an adventure, luckily for us that was only for 2 hours until the icebreaker arrived :-) Good luck ! More photos here:

I am starting to have my doubts about you. Most people would head south at this time of the year but, no, you go to Scandinavia in the middle of the winter. Geez. I heard about the ships trapped in ice, etc. - that could be interesting.
It is the January thaw here in the heartland and our deep snowpack is melting.

Hm.. well I tried it last time too, I am back now from Scandinavia for a few days and I got stuck in ice ! Not bad, because I managed to get good photos of the icebreaker that did free is hehehe :-) Sometimes along with something bad, comes something good.

Any time I head for the water to see ships it will bring the bad weather. Guaranteed. You can always count on it!

Hehe you also do not get to see the best weather I see !! I will see then, what will wait for me in Hamburg next week.. one week Baltic by ship ;)
