My first attempt at a panorama. Iron Chieftain about to load iron ore pellets at Port Latta - Tasmania. The loading quay is 2km long and has been in use since 1968. We loaded at approximately 2,400t an hour. The pilot stays onboard for the entire loading and if the wind reaches 30knots, we let go our lines from the mooring buoys and head back out to anchor!
