Glory Ace - Newcastle Harbour NSW Australia by 


A record shot that may be of interest to the connections of the ship owners and to members of the crew and their families.

This is the third image of three uploaded onto ABC OPEN to invoke comments and discussion on the value of coal exports from Newcastle to Asian countries.

This record shot shows the 47,000 DWT cargo ship “Glory Ace” leaving the Port of Newcastle on the 1st December 2012. Its cargo of high quality steaming coal mined in the Hunter Valley was loaded at the Basin Coal Loader opposite Kooragang Island. The iconic Nobbys Lighthouse can be seen in the background.

Taken with the Nikon D800, Nikkor 28-300 mm lens on tripod.

    From a competion judge’s point of view, what were you thinking when you composed this shot.

  • He he !!! good one Warren, the purpose behind the snapshot – this was one of 3 record shots uploaded on ABC Open to obtain comments (and arguments for & against) coal exports to raise the standards of living of people in 3rd world countries…Ri Guan Feng, North Fortune & Glory Ace.
    This is definitely not an image for competition, just a historical shot indicating when the ship was passing Nobbys in Newcastle on that date..
    Cheers,

  • OK Warren … however this image may be of interest to crew members & the shipping owners/contractors etc. .. a historical record of the ship in the Port of Newcastle. I don’t think I will get any comments on ABC Open.
    Cheers,
