M/V Findlay after dark

It's feast or famine when it comes to seeing towboats on the Ohio River in the Greenup and R.C. Byrd pools these days. Today was a feast day. I saw the Marathon and the Findlay around noon or 1 p.m. as they passed Huntington, and tonight I saw them after dark up near Robert C. Byrd.

I got this picture of the Findlay as it waited for permission to enter the lock. As usual, I had no tripod, so I held my camera against a utility pole.

Adam and I saw other boats tonight. There as the Alan P. Hall and the Detroit. We couldn't identify either specifically because of the dark, but we were able to see what kinds of boats they were. And we might have seen the City of Vicksburg, too.
