There was a lot of ship traffic in the harbor today. The weather was brilliant, so it was a great day to get some nice shots.
Just before sunrise:
Nippon Maru shifting to Pier 2:
A lovely sight! All of the yards perfectly square:

Working on pilot ladder:
B. Ace getting the engines going:

B. Sky shifting to Pier 1:
No doubt where a tug should push:
Nord Optimiser (previously anchored offshore):

Ha ha! Love the cloud of rust.
