Large Barge

Recently spent a little time around the Duwamish River in South Park, Seattle.  This day the river was really high due to runoff in the mountains. The barge looked like an ocean going type, although I’m no barge expert.  There are a couple of more steps, in the image, that are usually visible even during high tide.

Note: I used an old, Vivitar wide angle lens on the barge photo.

Duwamish Access III

Two large barges being moved both up and down river by tugs. A lot of containerized freight is staged up river for transport to Alaska. I know of two large operations, one either side of the river, that specialize in collecting and forwarding freight to Alaska ( one of which I actually did a job interview for about 30 years ago-fortunately I didn’t get the job). It’s not unusual to see vehicles of all types perched on top of a stack of containers heading north. What I found fascinating is that these barges draw little water and leave hardly a noticeable wake in the path. A small speedboat, on the other hand, will create all sorts of noise and a wake that sends the ducks scurrying and bobbing about :-).

Crane

The large crane at the site of the South Park Bridge. There are three cranes at the site at this time. This large one sits on a very large barge. Even with a wide angle lens I couldn’t get all of the barge in one shot. The yellow crane up on the old bridge in the background will give you a sense of scale.
