|Containership TRITON passing the spotter's grandstand at the Maasmond this afternoon. Many shots on Shipspotting have been taken from this place which is less convenient during winter times, as you need to get out of your car to take shots. The parking space has no view on the sea/river. A but further there are good options to take pictures sitting in your car, but you will be at least 200 metres less close to the ships.
There are several options for good shots, you can sit, relatively, low near the water or you can climb the dyke, where this shot was taken from.
The only set back is that you need a car to get there, since the opening of the Maasvlakte 2 containers ports, the bike distance from the ferry terminal has increased from about 4 km to at least 20. Wind can be your enemy too. There are now public transport options.
