A short trip, but oh so complicated !

|
This next photoshoot will give you a good impression of the heavy work that the lucky few (?) do to get these massive container vessels into our port. It is a real battle of David vs. Goliath but as he did in the bible David always wins ! The few accidents that happen, are all part of the job. Still though, somebody has to do this and there are apparently enough that are willing to do so. Not me though, I'll just hide behind my camera and capture all this action. Clearly visible in this shoot are all the different actions and maneuvers needed. Even though it seems standard, every time is a little bit different. The incredible time pressure also really puts a strain on the workers. Within an hour from passing the first land, the first containers were flying through the air.
