    Beautiful capture of this lovely ship, George. The grey skies just add to the atmosphere. Very nice!

  • Thanks Mike..this was back in 2006 when her hull was white, when I saw her in 2007, it was black. I think I liked white better. I expected that black cloud to open up on us, but it didn’t :)

    Great shot George. The sky really adds drama to the image!

  • Thanks Brian..it looks like she made port just in time to avoid the bad weather. It was quite threatening for awhile but didn’t do much except a few drops of rain.

    What a beautiful capture. Last year I volunteered for the Tall Ships organization in Tacoma, Washington. I loved every minute I spent there and have a deep love for the beautiful ships and just about everything connected with coastal living. I have, as they say ‘The Call of the Sea’ and have been that way my whole life. I would have loved to be on these grand ships and can image what life might have been like. You image is quite lovely and has lots of depth. That contrasting and moody sky adds another dimension. Well done.

  • Hi Marjorie, many thanks. I’ve always loved ships of all kinds. My Dad was a merchant mariner and my Grandfather was a deep sea fisherman with his own schooner, long time ago, but I used to fish with him when I was in school. Life on those old sailing ships was pretty tough, and I knew a lot of fishermen who never came home again. It was well said to be the age of “wooden ships and iron men”.Look on my other site http://www.yessy.com/georgecousins and you’ll find many more ship pictures, there are several folders at the left side of the first page. There’s a lot of different ones in there. Haven’t had time to get them on RB as yet.

    Lovely to see. I went inside the replica Endeavour when it came to Brisbane and it was shocking to be there, the cabins were so small and you had to bend down through the galley and sailors quarters to get to the captains room. Don’t know how they did it.

  • There’s a reasonable amount of space on this one, but I’ve been on the replica of the Bounty, and it was the same as the Endeavour,very low,very crowded. I agree, don’t know how they did it!
