Two things jump out at me. First, the car rides very close to the water. Second, the guy doing the poling must be pretty strong to move that vessel and load. An excellent shot.

@Steve Rice: Thank you for the excellent comment.

I've been on a couple of interesting ferries, but nothing like this one. Nice find.

That looks so dangerous. I'm surprised the barge will handle that load and remain level. A fine action picture.

An interesting ferry system you've captured here!! He makes it look so easy to do. I am surprised it floats. :-)

Were you on another 'ferry' or on land, Michael. You seem as close to them as they are to the water. <grin>
