Tugboats and Barges in Daylight

Neville Island.  Shot Saturday during the retirement party at a friend’s home along the Ohio River.

Maybe you saw yesterday’s night photography of the barges and tugboats. Those were taken handheld with Canon 24-70 L series lens.  The reflection of the lights on the dark river at night are more dramatic but the daylight shots taken with the Canon 70-200 L series let you see the details and appreciate the size of the vessels. They move at a fast clip.

  1. Very well captured. Amazing “small” powerful boats. Close to my home in Alsace, we can see them ‘working’ up and down of the river Rhine. 🙂

  2. You did a great job capturing the tugs, Ruth. Next, we’ll have to have you photograph them from a boat.

  3. I love barges. I think it would be fun to take a lazy barge cruise down some long river and just watch the world go by.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
