Sailing Ships
Photo Location: Helsinki 
Posted By: PePe, 07-21-2013, 02:43 AM

The Tall Ships Races are some of the biggest gatherings of world´s remaining sailing ships. This year there are more than 100 large sailships participating in the event.
Their departure from Helsinki yesterday was a spectacular sight! It took some 3 1/2 hours for the convoy to get out from the harbour. Enclosed a few snapshots.

Cool event. The first picture looks like an invasion from a 16th century Spanish brigade!

If viewers of this thread like sailing ships of yore, I was lucky enough to visit the Cutty Sark in London last month (after it finally re-opened after having been near burnt down in 2007).

I've just posted this week a bit of a photo essay on the Cutty Sark on a photo blog I am in early stages of developing. The post is based on photos from my visit (all shot with my Pentax K-x/Tamron 17-50 combo).

The link to the post is here: The Cutty Sark | Photo Morsels

Feedback welcomed.

Nice shots... a few of them look like period paintings.
