Very nice picture, looks like a boot picture (but this is ofcourse of the record).
The monotones add character to this picture Norrel, very nice.
Très belle photo "monochrome"....
Hey cool, you ain't getting me to cross the Atlantic in that thing though!
Very good choice of sepia for this one, Norrel! Beautiful shot!
Great lines! Some awesome marine architects in those days.
You're kidding me, keyberg! Please stop! ;>)
Thanks, marbiz, I thought that some old-fashioned colouring would fit this picture.
What's that, Guy? Are you chicken? The Vikings went from Denmark to Newfoundland in ships like this.
Thanks, Nawitka. The Vikings would have liked sepia as well!
There is a little wharf at the museum where you can order an old fashioned hand-made boat, frtzw906. Not only a Viking ship, but old fishing boats as well.
Yeah Norrel, but them big Viking women they had rowing intimidate me!
Great sepia Norrel, very nice ship :)
Warm greetings, Ippa
Now I understand, Guy, like Ippa is rowing her Vikingship on lake Pielinen. ;>)
LOOOL, perhaps we have been a Viking couple in our past ... ;))
The only reason that the Vikings rowed across the Atlantic, was they thought they were going to New Fund Land. They were trying to escape their own fincancial crisis.
Maybe its an optical illusion but that water sure seems shallow - if so the boat can't have much of a keel. Lovely shot in sepia.
LOL, Ippa. I know that cartoon, it is in some Dutch newpapers as well.
If they were, not1word, they didn't succeed. That's why they started looting my country.
The water is shallow, Cal. The boats didn't have much of a keel. They carried stones inside the boat, to prevent it from capsizing.
I've viewed the picture again, Cal, but it is largely optical illusion. The water wasn't as shallow as it looks like in the pic. The depth was about 3 ft/1m. In the picture it looks like if the boat is stuck in the mud.
Thank you for the vote!
I give my vote to the best pic, Kari ;>)
Very artistic! Good reflection.
I like it!
Thanks for your nice comment, Sankos!
I really love this picture in sepia (for old) and I can't come up with the right thing to say. It is really a great shot even if it is stuck in the mud. :)
