Next up is the Kaye E. Barker. She has appeared on this blog before, so I'm not going to go into her history.
I kind of like photographing just before sunset. The light is almost perfect and there is still enough that I have a high enough shutter speed. I kind of wish I were a morning person because I would imagine this shot with a little bit of mist rising off the water if I were taking it a sunrise. Oh well, this shot will work well enough.
I love the looks of a classic lake freighter. After you've looked at enough of them, you start noticing just how unique each one of them is.
I kind of wish those silos weren't in the background of this one.
A closeup of the pilothouse. I really need to figure out a way that I can get one one of these to take pictures from the other side of one.
Here she is approaching the Ambassador Bridge.
Shots like this are one of the reasons I prefer the Riverside Park to Belle Isle. Belle Isle is nice but the Bridge isn't as nice of a backdrop from there.
Here she is passing the Bridge.
As she heads up north to get more cargo. Pretty soon, she will be packed up for the winter.
