Further yesterday's post,

A wider view to show both tugs and the MV Federal Baffin just about to leave the dock. I opted on purpose to point up my camera to get more the sky. It created a bit of distortion, but I think it is still acceptable.

Thanks again for the visit and kind words. I will be back tonight. I have to board soon another ship exactly at the same berth (^_^)

That is totally amazing Robert! Excellent sharpness, it looks miserably cold there! How do you stand it? I love the wide angle here, it's just amazing how BIG these ships are!

Bonjour Robert.
Impressionnante image de ce bateau pris dans la glace.
Les belles couleurs sont aussi de la partie et contribuent à la réussite de cette splendide photo.
Bonne soirée.

Hi Robert,
I love your shots of ships - and to see it in the ice-water against the blue sky is so amazing and wonderful.
Thanks, just perfect
Sabine - wishnugaruda

Very colorful and well composed, I like the combination of red, white and blue and the contrast with the black frame.

Is goodto see you back with some nice maritime work Robert!
WAUw mighty machinery all around ,love it!.


Excellent POV, strong composition with the 'weight' of the shot towards the right, giving the ships room to move into the frame.

The distortion, for what it is, adds to this shot IMO.

Great shot.

Amazing scene, Robert and perfectly captured.
Powerful, dynamic composition with excellent framing

Really strong vibrant colours and a razor sharp image.
I'm not sure there is actually anything wrong with this shot at all.


well done


Hey Robert!

Yes it is a tug, but it sure looks like it's going to break some ice. :) Thanks for your note that you sent me. I just noticed your points; you've been around a while.

Hey, did I see a profile photo of you with a big honkin' lens? If so, what was it? You'll have to forgive me if I'm mistaken, because I'm in mourning over the Colts loss.

You can't go wrong with a view like this; it's beautiful! Awesome colors, great DOF and sharpness. What more can a guy ask for?

Be careful out there!

Amazing view, colors, POV, sharpness.I like the pattern made by white cloud in blue sky and diagonal blue boat. Wonderful depth.

TFS my friend

Boa noite robert
This is lovely...and it must be amazing to be there...lucky man you are. Impressive: the ice, the boat, the sky...ww...everything is so powerful.... Great energy in this scene, colors and shapes.
Unusual photo and powerful too.
Um abraço

Bonjour Robert

Je n'arrive pas à me décider si j'aime mieux cette photo ou la précédente.......je suis en train d'y penser..........j'y pense encore......et encore... Bon je ne sais toujours pas! Mais ce que je sais...c'est que les couleurs sont absolument splendides (probablement une combinaison de l'utilisation du filtre UV et d'une Canon voila! Bonne composition avec toutes les diagonales formé par le quai, le remorqueur et le grand navire rouge. Bonne idée que tu as eu de montrer plus de ciel. Tient je viens de me décider j'aime mieux cette photo, voila!

Paul (°U°)

Bonsoir Robert,
Une autre belle phote de ces bateaux au port de Bécancour, jolies couleurs et un excellent contraste de cette photo en contre-jour, le ciel est magnifique avec la glace dans l'eau .. j'aime bien..

Hi Robert: An absolutely stunning photo. The lighting and the lines of perspective make this composition looks three dimensional;very hard to do in photography...congrats on this gem......... thanks .........Roman:0)

Splendid photo - cracking colour and lovely composition with the wide angle filling the image with interest!! Distortion is great IMHO.
The black frame really enhances the colour here..

Nice pic!

Powerful,a strong composition with great natural colours & perfect details.I guess those Tug Captains need to know their business.
