Default Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin

Yep, I'm back with a few more shots of a Great Lakes freighter. This time it is of the Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin (click the name for more info if interested), of Canada Steamship Lines. She is seen here sailing upbound (north) on Lake Huron. It was a beautiful day today for a change. I even took a short video with my FZ35, too. Nothing special. Hope you like the shots! I used P mode. I thought I had the camera level. It looked like it was on the LCD screen. Guess I was off a little bit.

Here's a link to the video if anyone is interested.

I grew up near Lake St. Clair. We called them "ore boats", watched them a lot. Could hear their horns on foggy days too.

Pretty amazing to see them heading down the St. Clair or Detroit River up close with the current carrying them along.
