I’ve left on another gallivant before “processing” photos from the trip in from Chicago, these being from a portion of the Hudson in various times of day, qualities of light, and types of weather.

Down bound in the port of Albany, we pass Daniel P Beyel, Marie J Turecamo, and –I believe– Comet.

By now, Daniel P is part of the way to Florida.  And I’m intrigued by the units on the dock beyond her stern . . .

…nacelle covers–and I assume the innards–for what looks like 20 wind turbines.  This led me to find out how many wind turbines are currently functional in upstate NY.  I come up with a total of at least 770 as of a year ago: 528 installed since 2006  in the northernmost band from the Adirondacks to the Saint Lawrence Valley, 165 since 2007 in western NY, and 77 since 2000 in central and Southern Tier NY.  Read specifics here.

Treasure Coast loads cement in Albany County, where Lafarge has just dedicated an upgraded facility. 

Pike awaits the next job at Port of Coeymans.

And Tarpon–has to be the only one in the Hudson–moves a fuel barge as well.

Note: Part of the surprise lies in a link between the last ship foto and the farm foto.

A thin strip of ocean access flows across the rural areas of uppest-state New York at the Eisenhower Lock, and I wonder how bluewater mariners see this region.

The two crewmen on postside bow of Marlene Green take radically opposing approaches to the bright sunlight.

Tension on docklines holds the vessel in place as it lowers to exit downriver.

Marlene Green up . . .

down, and out, bound for the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne and then Cornwall and beyond.

Check out this link to the cargo a salty like Marlene Green might have delivered way into the American heartland? Sections of towers like the ones below. Wind farms like the one below (I took the foto from Rte 11) up in the north country intrigued me. I count 15 on this shot alone, although in this low-res format you might not see that many. The future is now up here.
