Default Drive down the St. Clair River

738' Bulk Carrier down bound this is the longest ship that can pass through the locks around Niagara Falls and enter Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Seaway to the ocean. All of the 1000' ships (and there are quite a few) can never leave the upper Great Lakes. Swan running on the river

Very nice photos! Is the swan taking off or landing? In any case, they normally look so graceful gliding along, this one looks more awkward.

Well both, he was skimming half airborne across the water.

Love that swan sequence Hans ! #2 is THE shot and will look great on the wall (even more so if you've cropped it and so can add a little more space in front of the bird) ?
