'We were visiting some friends who are camping at Long Sault and as we were leaving the campsite we saw this interesting ship heading out of Eisenhower Lock, heading upriver,' said photographer Don Straight of Brasher Falls. 'I drove out Route 131 west and caught an unobstructed view at the curve before the Massena Intake dam. In looking it up since returning home, it is the Taaborg, from the Netherlands, a vessel in the Wagenborg fleet. Apparently several of their ships have been in the seaway this year,' he said.
