Barge on the Columbia River

I went down to my favorite spot on the Columbia River in hopes of a spectacular sunset at dusk. While I was rather disappointed that the goal of my trip was not to come true because the low lying clouds were just a bit too think this night, I did get to be impressed by the sheer size and power of this huge barge heading east against the strong river current.
