The Adventuress

It's Sky Watch Friday and for sure, mariners are big on sky watching, both before and during a trip to sea. This shot is looking skyward through the rigging of the tall ship Adventuress, a 133 foot wooden schooner that homeports in Port Townsend and is managed by Sound Experience for educational purposes.

Since I'm from a country that once was known for his sailors, I can just admire such a photo.
It's amazing.

As an island dweller,I agree that we watch the sky, sea etc in aslightly different way, especially those at sea. Fabulous angle, ominous sky, gorgeous photo.

OK, this is my favorite (oh I know, no favorites allowed!), but it brings back so many memories of my life in southern New England with the old ports and the tall ships. I love your perspective, I love the brooding cloud.
