The Ri Guan Feng passing Nobbys Lighthouse when leaving Newcastle Harbour NSW Australia on 24th November 2012 with a full load of coal. The Ri Guan Feng, registered in Shanghai is a small bulk carrier of 75,000 DWT and is 225 metres in length. The steaming coal will be used in power stations overseas to generate much needed cheap electricity. Coal fired turbines are more efficient and practical due to economies of scale… 1 coal fired turbine is equivilent to over 1,000 wind turbines 24/7.
This will raise the standards of living of those people now presently living in 3rd world conditions and poverty overseas. But, Green climate change extremists living in Newcastle are against this and want all coal exports to cease because of rising tides…and keep poverty levels of people overseas as it is today.
This was just a record shot similar to others taken with the Nikon D800 hand held, as is, no photoshop using a Nikkor 28-300 mm lens.
This image showing the name of the coal ship with Nobbys Lighthouse is similar to previous images of Dong-A Rhea, Hanjin Haypoint, NSS Grandeur, Fortune Miracle and the Pacific Triangle.
