Hi Derek, the middle one tanker could be the ' Nord Butterfly ' or similar sister

The bulker looks like Ikaros shipping of Greece, likely the ' Ken Moonys ' or similar sister and the small tanker alongside
should be a local bunkering tanker of, say ,Gibraltar, if the scene so suggests

The Norient tanker is NORD SNOW QUEEN, the only one of those sisters at an anchorage that day - Gibraltar, then Algeciras
William's guess for the bulker was a good one - KEN MOONYS was bunkering there that day (Safi for Saudi Arabia)
The bunkering tanker is the Turkish OVIT (IMO 9466611) or sister CT LONGFORD (IMO 9393072), probably the latter going by the apparent length of name.

Perhaps next time please ask the photographer to tell you where he was.

davidships: Many thanks for that very helpful and detailed information. This is much appreciated. Photo was taken by my cousin who couldn't remember exactly where his ship was at the time - his suggestion - 'vaguely off Spain perhaps?' Derek
