The "Notorius" Caravel ( 2 ) Yardarms by Three. by 


I took this image just after sunrise at the Geelong Yacht Club on Sat March 10. 2012.
This is the caravel “Notorius” which is now a beautiful piece of workmanship to be admired by thousands.
NOTE the 3 yardarms all at the same angle…
( click on image to enlarge or just to appreciate the detail…)

.
*‘NOTORIOUS’ was built near Warrnambool in SW Victoria, by amateur boat-builder, Graeme Wylie who researched, designed and constructed ‘NOTORIOUS’ entirely from reclaimed timber, NOT having to chop down a single tree! A truly unique endeavour, inspired by the legendary Mahogany Ship.
.
21 metres long and weighing 70 tonnes, ‘NOTORIOUS’ is straight from the 15th century. Rounding the Cape of Good Hope in 1488, Bartholomew Diaz was on board a caravel and the ships used by Ferdinand Magellan for his circum-navigation of the world in 1519 to 1522 were caravels. And, the same ‘Lateen Rig’ is still used on Arab dhows in the Suez Canal today!

    Love this one too Larry. A sea of masts, and I do like the reflection in this too. I think it is the movement that I like

  • I wish I could be able to do that 3D image where the water actually ripples…
    As you say, this would look fantastic with the water moving.

    A superb capture. How wonderful this is.

  • And to think that she was built by one person with recycled timbers…
    It’s like living history…. Christopher Columbus would be proud.

    I actually like this kind of ripple, just enough distortion.
    i think what I love about this image too is all the masts in the background

  • I have lots more coming with lots of masts.. as I tried to make use of them…?

    Stunning shot and treatment. Instant nautical fave:-) I see the resemblence to the rig type on the dwows I saw in Qatar.

  • Really…. Now that’s something that I didn’t know about.
    Photography really makes you aware of things that a lot of us take for granted.
    Thanks K.
