Codorus State Park – Boating

Codorus State Park – Boating

Boating traffic on Lake Marburg looked busy at 11:50 on June 9, of 2012.

A Dog and two ladies rowing their way across the lake. The Dog looks relaxed with Mom holding on for comfort! Their Sun Dolphin Water Tender Row Boat is moving along well as the captain provides drive.

Pontoon boats are popular on Lake Marburg. Shown is a Suncruiser with a couple out enjoying the day! It should be noted their is a limit of 20 hp for boats traveling on Lake Marburg.

It looks like two guys are steering their sailboat in a bit of a tilt mode!

A sailboat with a colorful sail, cruises on the far side of the split!

Image Taken – June 9, 2012 – Lake Marburg

This image was taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ150K camera. These Panasonic cameras have an Expressive mode that amplifies the colors in images. As you can see from the image below, the colors around the clouds are really drawn out!

There are three Panasonic Cameras that I favor.

Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom – Black

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 4K QFHD/HD Zoom Digital Camera (Black)

These are actually bridge cameras that allow for point and shoot, are simple to use and have very nice features found on the more expensive cameras.

Glenville, Pennsylvania – CSX 208

Glenville – Ride to Codorus and the CSX 208

 

On a recent ride over to Codorus State Park, I was stopped at a crossing for an on coming train.

This is the CSX 208 hauling coal cars on the CSX tracks.It is approaching the Pennsylvania Route 216 crossing.

The train is Westbound.

The engine is a 4400 Horsepower diesel. It actually has a Microprocessor in it! Sometimes the 208 is a helper engine. Sometimes it is on its own, as in this instance!

This engine was built in 1996 and has done some traveling!

Here is some more information on the type of engine.
