Ocean Leader | The Leaning Giant

Another freighter arrived in Portsmouth today and is unloading sand onto the Granite State Minerals terminal on the waterfront.  The Leaning Giant (as I decided to name it) is named Ocean Leader.  I thought Leaning Giant was appropriate – since when I started to look at my shots once I got home and swore that I had taken level shots of the scene, I realized that something kept appearing off…then I realized that the boat was pulled so tightly against the pier, that it’s got a bit of a lean to it.  The angle probably had something to do with it too.  Either way, another beautiful late summer evening.
