Coal barge on the Meuse


A photo of fluvial traffic taken from the footbridge La Passerelle. A few weeks ago a boat of similar size collided with one of the Passerelle's pillars. The footbridge has been closed to the public since then and repairs are underway.

Nice photograph. It looks like the captain knows what he is doing in steering the boat. I also like to colors.

Excellent photo...did you use a fisheye lens? The boat leads you down the river to the buildings and the threatening sky.

Very purposeful, and how great for the environment that barges are still being used.

I want to go there, but I'm too far away!
