I went down to the river this evening to see if I could get some decent shots of the Detroit as it returned to its home port. I got a few pictures, but few that were noteworthy. I don't know if any of them were, actually. The time of day, the clouds, the cold, the empty barges blocking the view of the boat from the front -- all worked against me.
One thing I noticed was that few agencies are in a hurry to clear the mud of the boat launch ramps. They're probably waiting for the water to recede a bit more, but there's a lot of mud out there. At least the trees are starting to turn green. By the end of the month, we should have good picture-taking conditions.
