 It's always nice to get a wave from the pilot. 

In this case, it was from the motor vessel Tri State, a smaller boat that works the harbor at Catlettsburg KY. For the most part, it moves around barges for the bigger boats. The bigger boats deliver the barges to terminals on the Ohio River and its tributaries.

Not only did the pilot give me a wave with his hand, but I had to step back a bit while shooting this boat, as the waves from its movement were getting pretty close to where I was standing near the water's edge.

That's one nice thing about the Ohio River. The water comes all the way up to the shore.

M/V Leviticus at Catlettsburg

 With a lot going on and not much daylight to spare, I've not been able to get down to the river much so far this month. This evening I did, but all I saw the M/V Leviticus at Catlettsburg.

Leviticus might not be the easiest name to spell, but at least it's not the M/V Habakkuk or the M/V Deuteronomy.

I had gone up to Lock and Dam 27 to get a photo of the M/V Linda Reed, but she had an empty on the hip on the side I'd be shooting from, so I figured I'd try my luck at Catlettsburg. So far the photo luck has not been with me in January, but the month is still young.
