First shot of the night. Whoa? What are those things? Bugs? Maybe that's what they mean to "get the bugs out" at the start of a project. I have no idea what is going on, but this would be the only shot that had these streaks.
I overexposed this a bit to bring out some of the night sky. You can also see the orange light pollution of cities in the lower center and clear over to the right.
As barges go this was a little one. Just a four unit jobbie, so this guy must have been moving some empties down river to a nearby port. Because of his small size he was able to scoot along at a very fast clip.
You know? I'm not ready to leave. So I hop in the warm truck and head to Keithsburg in the hopes of being able to see this guy again and continue my experimentation. If I could grab another one down there coming from the south that would be a bonus. Let's go. As luck would have it, that's exactly what happened. More river posts coming up.
