Supply or demand?

North River anchorages have remained a bit busier than usual, for no obvious reason, with seasonal, supply, or demand explanations all plausible. B. Franklin relocated to the Upper Bay, but a pair of Poling-Cutler tugs remained into the weekend and were joined by Timothy Reinauer. Foreign product cargos remain in some demand apparently, with a foreign flagged tanker arriving from the refinery in New Brunswick Canada and heading for Albany.

  1. Those wet cormorants make awesome abstract art. How long did you have to wait for that final bird to fly into the frame and complete the composition?



    1. Haha, just lucky timing believe it or not.
