Hi Derek

Many thanks, she was certainly looking good, I can only hope for head ups, will have to wait and see.

Superb Ken,
Fantastic colours, and great that they are turning around for you now!

Hi Matt

Many thanks for your kind words, I wasn't sure until I saw her what hull colour she was in, I had seen her in blue, I was pleased to catch her head up, they usually berth head down so that was a bonus.

Kind Regards

Many thanks Marie-Anne, I was very pleased to see her facing head up the river, it all worked well today.

amazing ken, i photographed her alittle over a year ago in Bridgeport,CT transhipping low sulphur coal from Indonesia into the vessel Barkald. Thing is she had a bright blue hull back then, I must say I still like the blue better, still an incredible catch
