Canon Rebel T3 used.

This amazing beauty is The Elissa and she is known as The Official Tall Ship of Texas. Elissa is a three-masted, iron-hulled sailing ship built in 1877 in Aberdeen, Scotland by Alexander Hall & Company. She carries nineteen sails covering over one-quarter of an acre in surface area. She’s no longer sail worthy but a sight to behold non-the-less.

Hope you enjoy her beauty as much as I do :)

    Hi ya Judy – wow, what a gorgeous photo!!
    Love that lighted sky… you are so good with that Canon.
    The description is extremely informative, a super good
    addon to a super pic. Best to ya my friend :)


  • Hey Rog, how in the heck are you? It’s been way too long since we talked.
    I’m really glad you like my photo, but I’m not so sure it’s my Canon, lol. I think it’s more my emotional state of mind when I’m there, in Texas, that gives me motivation :)

    Thanks again for the support and I wish the best to you as well :)

    No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
