The Freighter Geiranger in Nanaimo Harbour at sunset – Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
I made this photo from Biggs Park (near Jack Point) in Nanaimo, British Columbia a few months ago. I hadn’t really intended on photographing a freighter, but it dominated many of my intended compositions at the time. So I embraced what was there, and made the above sunset photo.
When processing this photo I was curious what sort of cargo this freighter might be carrying. It seems this boat is a “general cargo” carrier, but I found something even more interesting when looking for this information. Apparently a lot of marine vessels can be tracked online and the Geiranger is no different. When I discovered this site it had left Nanaimo and was in China, but now it seems to be up in Kitimat, BC. This is all probably more interesting if you know someone on the crew, however.
