Default Glimmers from Moonlite on the Ohio

Following the festivities and post-dinner gathering at Judy's suite in Jeffersonville last July 18 after Alan's talk, Jonathan and I headed down to the riverfront between the Kennedy and Clark bridges to photograph the BELLE returning from her 8:00 Saturday night Moonlite. She gets in real close to the Indiana side there and makes picture taking real "up close and personal." I manned the still camera, and Jonathan did the honors with the digital camcorder. Unfortunately, since the video recorder required use of the tripod, I had to shoot my stills by hand, holding the camera as steady as possible for the night exposures. Of the 16 exposures, only two turned out reasonably in focus. I've included the best of the lot, and although the first one is blurry, it's still an interesting view of the old girl. Jonathan will be posting some of the footage he shot that night on you tube, with a link here on the message board. There's just something magical about the boat outlined with those hundreds of little bulbs. And the beautiful BELLE alone carries on that excursion boat tradition.
