This image may be of interest to the connections of the ship owners and members of the crew and families.
The image shows the 90,000 DWT bulk carrier “North Fortune” being assisted by the tug “Switzer Myall” past the iconic Nobbys Lighthouse on the 1.12.12. Its cargo of high quality steaming coal from the Hunter Valley was loaded at the Kooragang coal loader.
This record shot was composed to indicate the name of the coal ship with the Nobbys Lighthouse in the background. The image is similar to 6 other different coal ships that have been uploaded onto Redbubble … of export coal ships leaving the Port of newcastle. The record shot was taken with a Nikon D800, hand held on a dull overcast flat morning.
This export coal will generate electricity to satisfy the energy needs and raise the standards of living of people overseas.
