Tugboat and Barges on the Monongahela

Saturday afternoon, after the poetry reading at the Pump House, I walked outside.

I saw the tug pushing the loaded barges up the Mon towards the Rankin Bridge.

Because the leaves are still on the trees, I had to find an open space to catch the scene before it got away. Carrie Furnace is in the background.   Shot with the iPhone5.

  2. This shot took me back for a brief moment to Maple Ridge in Vancouver BC where this is a daily occurrence I viewed without ever tiring. Thank you my friend. Nice to be reminded
