This tug was pushing an empty barge back from a coal fired powerplant.

Boats and rivers are two of my favorite things. The light and mood in this shot are very pleasing. NICE WORK!

I'd like to see more of the barge

@Donna: Yes, this was a tough framing decision. To make the boat a smaller part of the frame so as to include the empty barge or to maximize the boat by showing just a suggestion of the barge. If the barge had been heaping with coal, I might have gone the other way, but it was empty and not very interesting.
