Forward view of middle chamber, Gatun locks, Panama Canal

View straight down the west lane, upper chamber, Gatun locks, Panama Canal. The ship ahead is in the middle chamber waiting to be lowered to the level of the filled lower chamber. That all one can see of the ship sticking out above the gate, is a bit of the superstructure, is a sign of how deep these chambers are, and how much water it takes to fill them.
