Tugboat Roundup 2014

Last evening saw the arrival of the boats for this year's Tugboat Roundup at Waterford, New York, the Eastern terminus of the Erie portion of the New York State Canal System, located at the confluence of a branch of the Mohawk River and the Hudson River. The arrival of the boats is a colorful event which I always try to attend - at least in nice weather. Yesterday was warm, in the high 80's with a nice breeze.

Last year I shot this event with my Canon EOS 5D Mark II and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens. My blog entry from that occasion is located here.

This year I used my two Canon EOS 7D bodies, one with the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS lens and one with the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS lens. Captions will indicate only the focal length and exposure information. A full gallery of this year's shots is located at
