I selected today's title based on my profile. When I say I'm interested in "ocean shipping" I'm mostly talking about large ships, which I find fascinating. On the afternoon of January 26th, I spotted this cargo ship anchored in Elliott Bay. The late afternoon sunshine created a bright reflection. Be sure to click on the photos for larger views.
The ship is waiting to be loaded with grain at the Louis Dreyfus Grain Terminal, which you can see in the picture below. This picture was taken last March from the Space Needle. Note the fireboat practicing at the left.
