Big Ship in Giant Harbor

Los Angeles -- The photo above is the stern section of a container ship, the USAC Jilfar. I snapped the shot from a grassy area at Ports O Call Village. The huge ship passed by on-lookers as if it was a parade float. Most spectators watched in awe.

The mammoth, cargo vessel was built in 2014 with the length overall (LOA) of 984 ft. At first I thought this could be one of the new "mega ships," but after a quick wiki search, the Magleby Maersk wins with a LOA of 1,306 feet.
