This picture shows a bulk carrier ship exiting from lock #3 of the Welland Canal on route from an Ontario port to Lake Erie. I put another picture into the Workshop which shows this ship entering the lock. There are eight locks on the 44 km long canal to overcome the 99 m level difference between these two lakes, this lock raises ships about 14 m. It is interesting to see how small is the gap between the ship an the walls of the lock. The locks are 24.4 m wide and can accommodate 225.m long ships. The ship pictured here, the Algoma Transport, is 223 m long a 23 m wide. The picture were taken from a observation platform beside the lock.

Both picture are attractive, and your notes very interesting.
In Belgium have we almost the same troubles with the a lot locks on our waterways.
But the two greatest ports in Belgium are Antwerp and Zeebruges, but come directly in the sea with one lock.
You choose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect taken.
Excellent composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
