And Now...the Lovely Kaye E. Barker

Next up is the ever lovely Kaye E. Barker.  I believe she was heading down to Dearborn to leave some taconite at the Severstal Dock.
 Her she is as she is coming off of Lake Huron and about to enter the St. Clair River.  I love this spot because you get such a clean picture of the boat.  As you can see, she is pretty loaded.
 You also get to see a few turns as she enters the channel.
 And an almost headshot.
 For as big as ships are, there are still some things that dwarf them.
 Except when the angles are just right. 
 She slowly works her way past.
 A shot of her pilothouse.  She does have one of the more unique looking pilothouses out there.
 A shot of her deckhouse.
 And she moves down the river.
 Another shot of her stern.
 Again she seems almost insignificant.
 I sort of decided to chase her down the River.  Mainly there was another ship I was trying to catch, which meant I was back where I started.
 Slowly she comes into view.  This is another one of the nice things about points on the St. Clair River, you can see the ships from a ways away.
 There's a nice looking ship.

 The almost straight out shot.
 A shot of her pilothouse.
And one more picture for good measure.
