Thanks Wayne. You are right, they do run like clockwork. We theoretically get a second chance to photograph each ship because they leave Auckland about 11am on Thursday morning each week. The Odense Steel Shipyard built container ships do look elegant compared to other designs of a similar size.

Nice photo Nigel,
As you say they arrive at 1-30 Wednesday,All 5 Sisters are running like clock-work,they have all arrived Lyttelton between 06-00 & 07-00 every Saurday and left around 21-00 arriving Port Chalmers around 14-30 on the Sunday,Hence no Lyttelton photos of them.
They were all Dry-Docked at Dubai before being phased into this service,would have been nice too get photos while in this pristine condition.

Tomas, you are right in this regard. Typical Auckland weather in spring and autumn has a cloud and rain front crossing the Auckland isthmus four or five times a day, and you can go from blazing sun to a liberal dousing of rain for 20 to 30 minutes as the cloud bank passes over. And of course the clouds can make for a good background in the photo.
We are lucky here with this newly reinstated service from Tangjung Pelepas and Brisbane by Maersk as the ships are due to arrive at 1.30 pm on a Wednesday each week, not at the normal 5 or 6 am for most other container scheduled services.

Thanks for the kind words Jens.

A most beautiful photo, Nigel! Nice ship, great surroundings. Thanks for sharing it.
Cheers, Jens

Thats the beauty about ship-photography, the uncertainty about the conditions.
Here a few weeks ago, there was this ship i really wanted to see, and all morning the sun was out. ten minutes before she arrived, dark clouds came floating, spoiled the whole day. bummer, but thats life, hehe!

Clyde, the sunny patches were short and fleeting today, and no such luck with the Hansa Century when it came in about 15 minutes later.
Clyde Dickens on Aug 28, 2013 06:58 (5 years ago)
It looks as if you caught her when she sailed into a patch of sunlight. Good one!

Thanks Tomas. I really like most of the photos you take from the Brevik bridge and surrounds. Your colours are always crisp, and the backgrounds makes for superb photos. Here I am using a polarising lens. Late winter sun in the middle of the day here in Auckland when the photo was taken.

Nice clean photo, sir.
Best regards Tomas
