Thanks Nate -- I was on a day long boat excursion from Detroit north to Port Huron/Sarina and we were crossing Lake St. Clair when she came along downbound. I sit in the bow on those trips and just had to point the camera and shoot. I have always liked the Desgagnes fleet -- to me they are the essence of the St. Lawrence and eastern Canada. That company really seems to have found its niche.

Amazing photo! I love the angle.
Neat little Desgagnes ship. As of last year I have now seen 4 Desgagnes ships in Providence, neat seeing those smaller size ships travel all the way down here.

Thanks Matt - don't know how this got reposted with a "new" on it -- posted it a couple of years ago. Just the luck of the day! I always like to see the Desgagnes ships.
