Default Tall Ships Sailed Into My Town

Well after seeing all the gorgeous works done by others I'm almost ashamed to post these but it's the best I can do now. Taken with the E-3 and 14-54 lens. No sharpening done yet, I used Windows Live Photo Gallery for an easy transfer to Flickr and I don't see any place where I can sharpen on that software. Wish I would have had the 40-150 lens for some of these shots. Hope you like.

Not much wrong with those shots James. I like them a lot especially the last...Hard on the wind..! Well not really.
Is that one the US replica of the HMS Rose..?


For quick and dirty PP I'll still use picasa, free from google.

Cheers

James, those are excellent shots. I especially like shot #5, as it really shows the excellent colors that you captured, i.e. with the different shades of blue between the water and the sky, and the colors of the small flags against the blue sky.

Ken the HMS Rose was not one of them although many are restored. The frigate with the canon ports actually served in the War of 1812 although there is very little left of the original. Most of them have been completely restored to the original. It is quite interesting to say the least.

DANG! These are good James, thanks for sharing. That E-3 / 14-54 is a great combination of hardware.

James, what/who did the restorations and who's sailing them..... private, navy, coast guard?

I love these, James!

Is the big one the Coast Guard's training ship Eagle?

Edit: Ooops - I forgot that the Eagle has the red stripe near the bow, and the Eagle's mizzen is gaff rigged not square rigged. It looks like it's the same size, though.

That ship is the Sorlandet....
Her Story:
Sørlandet was built in 1927 in the Verksted shipyard in the city of Kristiansand on the south coast of Norway. Built to be a sail-training vessel, she is the oldest of three existing Norwegian tall ships. Sørlandet made her North American debut in 1933 when she served as the Norwegian Pavilion during the Chicago World’s Fair. Today she is a sailing classroom for Class Afloat, a private school offering 11th and 12th grade high school and university level instruction. In the 2012-2013 school year, students will have visited 22 ports of call from Istanbul to Brazil and participate in service projects in Senegal and the Dominican Republic.

Thanks Bob. I believe they are privately owned/restored by volunteers and money they collect from their stops. When they leave my town today they will go their separate ways. Later in the year they will gather again in Marquette in the upper peninsula of Michigan and later at a port in Wisconsin. I talked to a chap who volunteers his time as a crew member on the Sullivan and has been doing this for 37 years. I based my thoughts on my conversation with him. Many of the ships are from foreign countries.
