"Great Lakes Schooner"


Traverse City, US
          

This is a common sight on Grand Traverse Bay near Traverse City this time of year. Several replicas of old Great Lakes Ships sail West Grand Traverse Bay throughout the summer taking passengers for rides around the Bay off of Lake Michigan and students on what's called the School Ship. This was last week on one of the few mild, sunny days we're had here this spring. Water temps in the Bay are still frigid ( mid to upper 50's). But days like this are beautiful to sail. The small piece of land on the horizon to the right is the Old Mission Peninsula which divides East and West Grand Traverse Bays.

Thanks Gerold

This is a fun ship to ride on ... sometime this summer I have to book a trip and get some shots from on board.

Lovely simplicity. I love the subtle shades of blue.

I do think your horizon is tilted a little bit downward to the right.

The water is beautiful here this time of year Diane. Cold, but beautiful. And because of the clouds that form from all the moisture we get lots of great light.

I've gotta take a close look at that horizon line. The ships masts are straight....thinking the way the land curves might be creating that distortion on the horizon.

Nice shot, here in Connecticut we get a fair share of Tall Ships as well

The shot below was one of the last of HMS Bounty before she went down off the coast of NC during Hurricane Sandy...

Hey RIck

There are a bunch of sunken Great Lakes Ships at the bottom of Lake Michigan. Divers have a lot of hours exploring them. Didn't hear about Sandy taking the Bounty....Nice looking ship

Thanks Larry

It's pretty striking seeing them sailing solo across that great expanse of water. Come summer and later into tourist season here the Bay will be filled with all sorts of boats. And once a week there are sail boat races that make for some great photo ops.

cheers
