Tanker, San Francisco Bay

Usually these huge tankers and container vessels make it in an out of San Francisco Bay without incident, but other times -- like just one year ago with the Cosco Busan spilling 58,000 gallons of bunker oil into the bay -- they have their problems.

I'm not sure if the following photo (taken three years ago) is the Busan, but it is a Cosco ship.

I still don't undertand why they had to move the ship that day. It was *unusually* foggy, I mean really, really foggy, all the way to the Oakland hills.

I love the "tree with fingers" up on the banner. Hope you're out and about, enjoying the nice weather, this WE.

These two photos are very familiar to me because I see every day huge tankers and container vessels like those crossing the Bosphorus in order to reach the Black Sea and Russia. Because the Bosphorus is a narrow strait difficult to navigate, the risk of accident is very high and it happens every year unfortunately.
