Statsraad Lehmkuhl

These pictures of The Statsraad Lehmkuhl were taken on July 12th 2009.  She is about to dock at her home port in Bergen. She is a three-masted barque rigged sail training vessel. I have seen her a few times before, but never while holding a camera.

I liked the generation gap between the two ships, the identical white paint and the windows which almost look like some kind of perforation going through the picture. Usually I would prefer a blue sky, since I am never around when there is one, but in this particular picture, I think a blue sky would distract to much away from the ships and what I want others to see.

  1. A beautiful sailing ship. I especially like the shot showing the detail in the bow.
