Four more Mister Mac photos

Ever find yourself in a situation where you wish you had, say, a 40-some-megapixel camera with a 400 mm lens and a really good tripod so you could get that head-on shot of a boat about a mile down the river? Me, too. Lots of times.

Here's a closer look at the M/V Mister Mac itself.

Another head-on shot of the boat and its tow.

And an overhead shot of its tow.

Now to edit some pictures of other boats I saw as the Mister Mac and its tow moved through the area.

The M/V Mister Mac and its equipment for a natural gas processing facility or a refinery or something on the upper Ohio River passed through my area this morning. I managed to get off several dozen shots. I'm still trying to go through them and select the best. This is one of them.

The main problem with this shot is that the big unit on the starboard side of the barge blocks the view of the similar but smaller one on the port side. Here is an overhead view.

I figure people who are following the Mister Mac's trip on Facebook and elsewhere soon will be seeing lots of drone footage.

While waiting for the Mister Mac to come through Catlettsburg, Ky., I saw several other boats and got photos of them. Here the Marathon and the Kentucky are both at home port.

More photos to come later.
