Although it may have been a bit of a pain in the backside for the crews of ships that visited Adelaide that they had to man the derricks to unload their own ships (instead of getting down the pub or chasing the local crumpet), the absence of dockside cranes, at least in this part of the port, enabled you to get alongside shots from the quayside that we could never get here without them being cluttered up and obscured by cranes.
Also, that weather!
Even on the nicest, sunny day, we could never get such clear, crisp conditions and blue sky like that. I guess the difference must be down not only to different degrees of latitude but also to atmospheric pollution in this part of the world. I am not normally a fan of dockside shots and, with some exceptions have tried to avoid them in favour of photos of ships under way, but this one, like all your others, is a cracker!
By the way, the 11XXXXX number you quote as the IMO number is not, in fact, an IMO number. I know you got this from Miramar but only the seven-digit number that appears in Miramar’s “LR/IMO” column is relevant to what the Admins (I’m not one) of this site are looking for. If Miramar doesn’t give that number, I would suggest that you leave it blank. Someone is bound to supply the correct IMO numbers in their comments to your pics. (Check the PMs I have sent you on this subject).
The correct IMO number for HAPARANGI should be : 5142463
Keep ‘em comin’ boyo!
