Twilight of the Tall Ships

Tall Ships at Dawn, Charleston Harbor, Charleston, SC

Before the routine docking of cruise ships at our port, a cavalcade of tall ships came to Charleston every few years. It was one of my favorite events. Ships of various types from multiple countries would line-up along the harbor docks, like these masted beauties which I photographed early one morning.

  9. Wow... a real maritime delight. The organised chaos of the rigging, the sail like shape of the bridge, reflected lights and that purple twilight come together in a master-piece.

  12. Nicely composed with the very modern bridge in the back; the light of the dawn (?) is wonderful.
    Have a nice day.
