Moving barges at Kenova

Sometimes you're standing there, shooting away as the M/V Mr. King moves barges around for the M/V Energy and you realize something is wrong. Your next camera will have a voice that asks, "You changed some settings for the previous photo. Are you sure you want to continue shooting with settings you don't normally use?"

My camera is not that smart, so I did my best to salvage the images I got yesterday at the mouth of the Big Sandy River. Here they are without comment.

Coming soon are photos of other boats I saw yesterday. It was an unusually busy day around here.

M/V Marathon and others

Yesterday while I was at Virginia Point Park in Kenova, W.Va., at the mouth of the Big Sandy River, there was a lot of river activity going on. Here deckhands from the M/V Energy are working on the wires of a tow while the M/V Marathon heads upriver lightboat behind them.

More photos of the Energy and the process of moving barges around to come.
