It must be glorious when the set sail. I have only ever seen a fleet of tall ships at our bicentennial celebrations in 1988.
A feast indeed. What could be more beautiful and exciting!
what a beauty!!!!
I'll say. Lucky you and your camera.
Ah, the wonder and romance of sailing into the sunset on one of these tall ships. Great portraits of them.
Beautiful! Love those colorful flags. :)
I absolutely envy you!
This must be just amazing to watch! These ships are simply gorgeous.
They are so grand and colorful! I think the intricate rigging is amazing.
OMG. You're so lucky to see these up close and personal and your photos are gorgeous! Did you get a chance to go on board any of them? Portugal, as I recall, is one of the world's leaders in Tall Ships! Re your comment on Ocala DP: I didn't realize that you had so much of the same problem. I guess corrupt bankers and mortgage brokers are international. Very sad!
What beautiful ships! It must have been magical to see them underway.
Oh, how fantastic, JM! Such grand and beautiful boats and how wonderful to watch! We do have a Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend, WA in the summer and it is a great event, but not as great as this! Thanks for sharing.
@Lowell: Yes, you can visit most of them, the bigger ones. The problem is that standing in long lines under a very hot sun waiting to go in is not my cup of tea! :-)Actually, at least three of these ships are Portuguese. The top shot shows one of them, the Sagres.
Beautifull pictures of great ships. It is amazing to see so many old ships at the same time.
Oh Wow. Diane
An excellent perspective on a stunning vessel. Have a great weekend JMShaun July Giveaway @ ValleysShutterBug
They are beauties, JM. Tall ships visited New London, Connecticut, about two weeks ago, but I didn't manage to get down there.
Love these ships!!!
How fun it would be to sail on one of those.
OH the romance and beauty of these shots!
Belissimas caravelas e suas fotos estão excelentes!Léia
Magnificent, I love the tall ships.
Wow - these really are gorgeous works of art.
Like Jack said, we had tall ships in New London, CT a couple of weeks ago. They barred all vehicle traffic in town, so I didn't go see them. The finest and largest ship was from Brazil.Love these ships!
"Beauty" is the word for this!
Love them all!!Love the BLUE colors and SUNSHINE too.
Imagino que deve ter sido glorioso tantas Caravelas ao mar, como na época dos Grandes Descobrimentos. Gostava de ter estado aí ter visto tudo isto de perto. Memorável.
Fabulous, thanks so much for sending me the link so that I did not miss these.
