Look how it dwarfs the little boat passing thru the Kanmon Straits in the other direction. Must be intimidating... Hey! Looks like it could use a paint job, too!

Focused the Olympus E520 DSLR on the rope in an attempt to get an artsy-fartsy shot. Not an easy task... It would be easier with the E620 as it has an adjustable display, while the E520's is fixed. Ho-hum. Gave it a try.

TORONTO ( Wallenius Wilhelmsen ) Roro Auto Carrier Vessel

Meet TORONTO. Toronto is not that place in Canada but a RORO auto carrier in the Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet. This amazing vessel is 200 meters long and 32 meters wide. It is a very impressive ship!  Toronto - a Wallenius Wilhlmsen Roro Auto Carrier Vessel 001 It was photographed as it passed thru the Kanmon Straits on March 7, 2022 (JST). Toronto was on its way from Kanda Japan to Incheon Korea.  Toronto - a Wallenius Wilhlmsen Roro Auto Carrier Vessel 002 As it passed between the cities of Kitakyushu and Shimonoseki it looked like it was bigger than the buildings it passed by. Even the large buildings in the Moji Ward of Garden Paradise Kitakyushu look small next to this ship.
