Freighters moving again

[Container Ship in the San Francisco Bay] The large number of anchored boats has been replaced by a surge of traffic on the San Francisco Bay as the port shutdown lifts.

Nice pic.. The lighting was great. Did you do this during your ferry ride?

Thanks. Yep, the captain had to do all sorts of swerving to miss boats today, in previous days we've done a little weaving, but it's been subtler because all the boats were sitting still. This morning the bay was in motion (even though the water was still enough that I could stand on the very back of the rear deck and not get splashed, a rare occurrence).

At larger sizes (which is where it starts to look decent) this looks okay on my laptop, but still has too high a contrast range on my desktop CRT. Dang it, I wish we could get better display standards...
