Tugboat Roundup 2016

Last evening began this year's tugboat roundup with the parade of boats into Waterford Harbor from down the Hudson River. There were a lot of boats this year, some of then even tugboats. What was unfortunate this year is that the boats arrived over a half hour later than some years in the past and that, coupled with the date being a few days later, resulted in the sun setting behind the trees leaving the boats in shade with a bright sun background as the entered the harbor.

While the past two years I had located myself on the bridge over the harbor, this year I went back to the "beach" on Peebles island where I had decent views of the boats before they hit the shade.

I used both my 5D Mark III and my last remaining 7D with 24-105mm and 70-200mm lenses attached, respectively. I did note that the clock on my 7D has not been set for daylight savings time so the time indicated in the photos is an hour earlier than they actually were made.
