I spent some time on the river this weekend looking for images. I have three images for you today of tug boats and barges.
This first image is actually two images stitched together in Photoshop®. I was up by Mud Lake when I captured this barge moving South to the Lock and Dam. I had the Nikon 80 – 400 mm lens and even at 80 mm focal length the barge was too long to capture in one shot. So I did a front and back shot of the barge and stitched them together. 🙂
This tug boat was captured with the same 80 – 400 mm lens as it passed under the Julian Dubuque Bridge. I shot this at a focal length of 400 mm from the sidewalk below the Great River Walk area. It was windy and cold so I opted to go down to the sidewalk to get out of some of the wind.
Finally I’ll leave you with this image (also shot at a focal length of 400 mm) as the tug waits at the railroad bridge for it to swing open.
A train had just passed over the bridge about 10 minutes earlier and perhaps they were waiting for another train because after 15 minutes of waiting for the bridge to open I had reached my level of cold and headed back to the car. 🙂
That’s it for today. Hope to have more images for you tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
