The bulk carrier Ziya K is seen in this photograph as she was transiting upbound in the Welland Canal during the morning hours of August 30, 1998. At the time it was taken she was sailing southbound in the canal below lock 1 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada destined for the upper Great Lakes to unload steel products.

Ziya K formerly Rubens (89) and Lora C was sold in May or June of 2001 by Yeni Yildiz Denizcilik of Turkey to unknown interests who applied the name Med. She was subsequently sold for scrapping in China for around $163.00/ldt or around $1.14 million.
