Hi all...Thankyou for the interest shown in my upload of a few days ago titled The Russians are coming...
Cape Town has been a buzz with the 4 day visit of the 92 year old Tall ship clipper that is on a 32 stop world cruise. The ship left our shores for Walvis bay yesterday afternoon in 34 deg heat with only a hint of a breeze. I was fortunate enough to be one of those allowed on deck on Wednesday. It was a photographers dream. I have included an array of images for those of you that may be interested, the rest of you may skip over them. We were not allowed inside the ship but believe that mahogany panels decorate the walls, and tables are topped with antique maps, globes and brass compasses.
In a few days time I will share a few more images with you.
PS Try spot him, there is a man in a red shirt on the very top of the second mast taking photographsGrinGrin
Have a nice day, I have sunburnt shoulders from this outing yesterdayGrinGrin
V4 is for Chinga (Isabel).... green ropesGrinGrin
V16 for Nathan (NDODS)

I totally agree with John Colleen. These images are fantastic showing and telling so much about this majestic ship. You have captured the very essence of her. Very well done indeed.

A great opportunity and so well taken, Colleen. A fine set of details and the larger picture. I like the antique feel of the last one, and the colour/reflections in the brass of v11 look particularly good.

What a great opportunity and one which was to good to miss Colleen. A superb set of nautical images each one of them so very well observed and captured. Image 16 being my particular favourite and one which for me captures a real feel of marine nostalgia and high sea romanticism.

What an amazing and wonderful set of images Colleen. I am green with envy....the last time I was in these waters was before a Cape to Rio yacht race in about 1973....I had sailed from DSadurban with the crew to Cape Town but alas couldn't do the Rio trip and had to watch the start of the race from the shore.

You have so many excellent and well spotted images in this beautiful set. Ann.
