Rick D General Thanks... Very difficult photo to catch. In 13 years, have only been in a position to do this one time. Requires parking a half mile away, and running out onto the Hwy 69 bridge just to catch the tain alone, not to mention the luck of a crossing tow boat. I had no idea the tow was coming until it went under me. Pure luck this day. 10/16/2016 9:01:07 PM
Tom Dethmers General Great shot, one of the best I have seen after looking at thousands of them. 12/28/2016 4:34:05 PM
