Two days and a camera

Here are a few photos from Wednesday and Thursday.

First, the mv. Transporter, seen from Harris Riverfront Park in downtown Huntington, W.Va., with Chesapeake, Ohio, in the background.

A few minutes later, the East End bridge, with the morning sun high in the sky. The plume of vapor behind the bridge is from an asphalt plant.

Near sunset, the mv. Lady Mary passes under the East End bridge, downbound.

Around 8:45 p.m., the lights on the bridge came on. One of these days, I'll get the two nighttime photos of the bridge that I want. This isn't one of them.

Thursday morning, the mv. Mongah came down the river in a heavy fog. As you can tell from the bush at the top of the bank, the fog was entirely on and over the river. 

The fog burned off as the Mongah passed my position along Route 2 a few miles north of Huntington.
