Photographer's Note

Oil/Gasoline transport, articulated tug-barge unit (ATB or sometimes referred to as a "pin boat") heading outbound to the Atlantic Ocean from Delaware Bay. The tug attaches itself to the barge using two large metal "pins" on either side of the tug with teeth that match up to slots in the barge. Using hydraulics, the pins are extended out from the tug into the slots on the barge. This is a much safer design than using steel cables or ropes to pull a barge.

The Delaware Bay Channel is fairly busy with commercial transport vessels. It is how vessels get to Philadelphia, and also is a "short-cut" (along with the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal) to get to the Port of Baltimore from the Atlantic. 40% of all commercial ship traffic use the C&D Canal to get to Baltimore.

I snapped this photo drinking my coffee on the stern deck in the morning. A great way to start any work day, though 3 hours after snapping this photo I got a Grade III sprain in my right ankle. Bad Times!

For post processing, I used Photoshop adjustments:

Leveled horizon
Selective Color: Increased Yellows in the Neutrals. Increased Blacks in the Cyans and Blues.
Adjusted Brightness and Contrast
Increased Saturation
