Boxed In

This is our entry in Dutch goes the Photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rectangles.

The Hutchison Ports Freeport Container Port (FCP), located in Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, is “a major hub for worldwide transshipment of containerised cargo.”  It has the capacity to handle 1.5 million TEUs per year. (A TEU, or Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit, is 20 feet long and 8 feet tall.)  The capacity of a very large container ship can exceed 14,000 TEUs.

The photo below was taken from the Carnival Pride as it was docked in the Freeport Bahamas Cruise Port in Lucayan Harbour.  The containers in this end-on view are but a small percentage of all the containers in port that day.

This photo was taken on December 28, 2012. Specs are:

Canon PowerShot SX40HS, ISO 100, f/5.0, 1/200 sec, 74 mm.
