Container Ship

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

I recently spent some time in Halifax, NS.  The city has a rich history, playing vital roles in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War and both World Wars.  The city also is the final resting place for a number of the victims from the Titanic.  Today one of the main industries using the harbor and it's facilities is the container shipping industry.  This container ship was seen entering the harbor to be off-loaded of its containers, which are placed directly onto trucks for shipment overland to their final destination. 


  1. Good photo of a container freighter. Certainly a ship to fit the current world economy. Love your series walking through the woods also.

    1. These ships are big. It amazes me how all those containers stay onboard, especially in rough seas. They look like they'd fall right off. Thanks for looking!
