Kate and I drove down to Jack London Square for the last Friday night ferry of the year. A low sky, with the cloud ceiling down around the tops of the Bay Bridge suspension towers. Somehow, that made the usual port light show even more intense than (or maybe just different from) usual. Among several ships working in the Port of Oakland tonight, Yang Ming’s YM Great, which arrived this morning is scheduled to sail tomorrow morning.

Great photo, a touch of time exposure. Did you take it with your camera or your new Iphone?
John: This one was with the Casio; the boat was moving at a pretty good clip, and I guess I did a sort of an accidental pan to get the words “Yang Ming” relatively clearly (the ship name at the bow is not more blurred by comparison). I didn’t try to shoot with the iPhone until we were docked a few minutes later. I was kind of impressed by how that shot came out: http://t.co/b3AFzgCU
Very cool. I love the lighting. Happy New Year, Dan.
Hey, Marie: Thanks. And Happy New Year right back at you.
Cooling towers are heat removal devices used to transfer process waste heat to the atmosphere. Cooling towers may either use the evaporation of water to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to near the wet-bulb air temperature or, in the case of closed circuit dry cooling towers, rely solely on air to cool the working fluid to near the dry-bulb air temperature.
