Tugboat Pushing Barges Up the Monongahela

Shot from the passenger seat while sitting in traffic on the Rankin Bridge, Sunday just before dusk.  I was surprised how fast the tug and barges moved. To catch it all including the top of the railroad bridge seemed a slim chance. The beauty of being stopped, bumper to bumper, Steve said jokingly, well you could just get out! Right.

Just a hint of bridge barriers at the top and bottom edges, the power lines seem connected like a marionette.
