One More Tall Ship

flags sorlandetFriends, the Norwegian ship Sorlandet, as she passed the end of the canal in Duluth Minnesota on Tall Ship Parade day.  She wasn’t flying sails but all dressed up for the festival to come.  Looks like a man-made spider web but no one aloft. til Tomorrow MJ



niagara comparisonFriends, the tall ship Niagara entered the harbor at Duluth during the Tall Ship Parade.  She is one of the larger ships and sits flat on the water.  I wasn’t in love with the color version, so rendered her in black and white, then in sepia to give it an old time flavor.  Which version do you prefer? til Tomorrow MJ

Tall Ship Parade

pride 2013Friends, this ship was the first tall ship to enter the Duluth Harbor yesterday in the Parade of Tall Ships.  She is the Pride Of Baltimore and that is written on the yellow flag flying from the top of her mast.  Jim and I were able to ride aboard this ship in 2010 and she is truly a very fast ship.  You can see in this image that she leans away from the wind when her sails are full. Love the tall ships. til Tomorrow MJ

Tall Ship Day

niagara 2011Friends, I am very excited today we are going to Duluth to photograph the tall ship parade as 10 ships enter the Duluth harbor from the mighty Lake Superior.  This is an image of the Niagara as it entered the canal marked by the little lighthouse in 2011.  Lots of history concerning the war of 1812 is connected to many of these ships and I hope to be in this same spot today to photo their entry.  In 2010 we had 12 ships for the festival, but in 2011 and 2012 only 2-3 ships were present for the show.  In 2011 you can see the weather was less than favorable, but today dawned bright and cheerful so good images may be possible. til Tomorrow MJ
