Pelican

By TrevBatWCC    
Having walked back to and crossing the bridge that links the two halves of Weymouth, I walked along Custom House Quay towards the 'Pelican of London' which I uploaded images of about a week ago, taken from the other side of the harbour. You may remember that I showed in that upload figures in the rigging adjusting the sails. These images were taken about 1 hours later, and there is still one of those figures up there (see V2) - I think his mates forgot to tell him they were going and left him behind! Grin

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile

Three excellent shots of this fine vessel, Trev!
I think the chap they left behind is approaching the task more rigorously than his mates!Smile

The pelican figurehead is very attractive.
It occurs to me that the one person left on the rigging might be a model, not a real person at all, but that's just my imagination I think.
