Tall Ships in Portsmouth

Filed under: New Hampshire — Miriam @ 6:00 pm

I love all things naval so I love when the Tall Ships come into Portsmouth for tours.

I feel that jesthebes.com and thedailyportsmouth.com (and here) did a great job covering their visits to the tall ships. So I don’t feel a need to elaborate too much about the event. I showed up a little too late to take tours so I just took a few pictures from behind the rails.

I can’t even imagine how ships used to require huge crews to man relatively small ships because of the amount of ropes and hauling. The enormous ocean carrier ships now often only have crews of a dozen people or so.

Here are some pictures from my visit. I mostly did some closeups because I felt I couldn’t properly capture the full ships without lines of people from the viewpoint I was at. That and I’m obsessed with the telephoto lens.

I love the contrast between the ropes and the steel bridge behind it. I need to take the time to properly edit this picture.
