I’ve seen this Explorer class CMA CGM once before, at least.  I’m not counting on CMA CGM Zheng He to call in the sixth boro, unfortunately.  If you don’t know the namesake of that ship, Admiral Zheng He, he’s someone to find more about. You can start here

It gives no consolation that CMA CGM Magellan, here in October, came and went unrecorded by my camera. 

If you don’t know much about the namesake of this ship, for example how many times he actually crossed the Atlantic and about which there is some controversy, click here.

What caught my attention most, though, was the patches of hoarfrost on the hull of the ship.  It should not be a surprise, because the same stuff coated my windshield yesterday morning. 

More patches are here.  But then, it was the stark distinction between the light/shadow on the tug, on JRT.

Then shadows appeared, burnt into the frozen hull.

See the docking pilot himself and the shadow?

See the pilot nearing the bottom of the ladder and reaching out for the deck hand?

Happy November, all, from WVD.
