Fog . . . it’s fickle, patchy, and blinding. Even with radar, I imagine it causes stress. Count the tugboats below. Follow the lights and you get two: Patapsco and Wicomico from right to left. Easter morning 645 am at IMTT.
Same place, 745. I think the vessel is Maryland.
Same location. 800 am. Meagan Ann, whom you saw here in snow now just barely a month ago. Fog forms in warm land air (75 Sunday) over cold water.
Patapsco over by LaFarge silos (now fog-shortened) near Hess Bayonne, as seen from IMTT. 830 am. Note: Hess Bayonne is less than a mile to the east of IMTT, where earlier fotos were taken.
Eastbound Ivory Coast at IMTT. 900 am.
Westbound Ivory Coast, near Hess Bayonne, at 930 am, half an hour later than the previous shot.
Eastbound Stephen Scott, near Hess Bayonne, around 940.
Westbound tanker Ionian Wave, escorted by Brendan Turecamo just before 1000. Note the Monitor-like appearance of the Staten Island ferry.
All fotos Easter Sunday morning by Will Van Dorp.
