That's a very effective shot Doerthe. J
Thanks, John. I have quite a few shots similar to this one. The river turns sharply in several location near the Blue Water Bridge, so the freighters are forced to follow the deepest channel, hence this position facing me. The freighters draw about 40 feet (approx. 12 m), so no room for errors. The lake freighters do not need a pilot, but ocean-going freighters are required to take on a pilot in Detroit to get into Lake Huron.
stunning technique shot. I got it you have such ones before but it is always a strong thing.
yes, I have quite a few photos like this one. The river turns sharply in two areas where the freighters for one minute face me directly. But I don't always get lucky enough to capture the ship at the right moment.
Thank you very much for your kind message.
