M/V Amherst at dusk

The sun had just set behind me, and the last bit of direct light was gone from the hills in front of me as the M/V Amherst of Amherst Madison passed by me this evening.

It was still a good view, right?

I also got photos of the Linda Taylor and the Sally Whalen this eveing. If anyone asks, I will post one or both.

A good photo gone bad

Today I was able to see two guys on a tow work with ropes (lines or whatever the people on boats want me to call them). I got several photos, one of which I thought was really good ... until I noticed one guy wasn't wearing gloves.

I don't know what the safety requirements for this particular company are, but I have a general policy here that I don't do things that get people fired just so I can show off a nice picture.

If gloves aren't required, let me know. But most people I've seen on boat wear gloves when they're out on the barges.

Two Crounse boats at Catlettsburg

 It looks like the M/V Janis R. Brewer was pushing and the M/V Linda Reed was deadheading, but ...

... appearances can be deceiving, particularly with maybe 20 barges in their tow and Greenup a few hours ahead of them.

A boat, a crew, a flag

 This was in my backlog of photos I've taken in the past week or so.

The MAP Runner is entering the Big Sandy River.

M/V RH Beymer

 Seen from Virginia Point Park at Kenova WV yesterday morning.

Here's a wider shot of the same image. I like the closeup better mainly because of the person fishing on the Kentucky side.

And others ...

This time of year the midday light can be brutal when you're trying to balance highlights and shadows without altering the image too much.
