Yes, the 2011 calendar cover is probably my favorite now, but hand-tinting that photo in PhotoShop was a lot of work! The edges of the green leaves were especially difficult and time-intensive!

According to Dan Owen (who helped support our fundraiser by donating the use of these fine photos from his Boat Photo Museum), this cover scene is in Beaver Creek, near Smiths Ferry, PA, just outside of East Liverpool, OH. Coal from local mines was trucked to this tipple and barges were loaded. Boats like the L.G. BEAVER would then back the loads out into the Ohio River and make-up the tows that would take them to customers downstream.
