Early morning arrival with full sails. La Guaira, Venezuela.
Sorry for the quality. Scanned from an old 35 mms. hard copy in not good shape... Shot taken from a crew boat on the way back to my anchored ship ( waiting for a free pier...) The shot date its aprox. (but was in September 1982 for sure) Almost 35 years ago...
If accepted...Better at Full screen (for 2048 pix)

Hi Clyde. I like to "switch" sometimes between old 35 mms and new digital uploads...but most of my hundreds and hundreds of 35 mms. hard copy photos are in grainy paper and the negatives in bad shape. So, sometimes I fight with the scanner for hours to get one more or less acceptable for Shipspotting standards( regular or bad quality in my scanning levels...jeje)
Well, thanks for your kind comments my friend.
