Digicam,

Nice series. I agree that a bit more of the boats would grab our attention a bit more.
Dear lord don't... is a winner.

Hi all

Gimli...whenever a vessel leaves port it is metaphorically "under sail" . Obviously, the Nimitz does not rely on wind power!

Thank you, BrtSergio and Selvin for your kind words

(Selvin, caption of last pic pays homage to a great line in the film, The Right Stuff about the Mercury 7 astronauts . Pick up the DVD )

It was intentional that not all of the vessel was photographed.

Whether I failed or succeeded, I was trying to capture the size
of sail v. sailor and the "exposure" when "going aloft."

Also, historically, FYI, "going aloft" was a right of passage for a 19th century sailor as it is for present cadets at USCG Academy.

For a discussion of "going aloft" on the USCG Eagle go here:

Also, you can go here for lots of photos of the Eagle:
