STS Sedov in Vigo.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The city of Vigo in Spain is our backdrop to this beautiful tall ship: “STS Sedov”. See the sailors high aloft on the fore spars as well as the intrinsic beauty of this ship. I was lucky here with the lighting that in combination helps to make this one for the album perhaps. Enjoy!

(See the two previous pictures of this ship for further details. ). Also, if you wish the STS Sedov formal web site.

Beautiful capture Herb, you must have been flying in a balloon to get this one. The Sedov started out life as the Magdelene Vinnen and was built in my home town of Kiel, FYI. Well done and Like

C.L thanks for another visit. I was in fact on board a rather high cruise ship just departing from the space behind the tall ship, thus my hight. I actually give some of the history, as you too describe, on the first page of this one. Thanks for your fine awards and input.

Lola, thanks for another visits. Yes, I know we are very lucky to see such places and objects whilst travelling in such luxury. We save all our money for such things.

**Marek, great to see you here admiring this great ship. Thanks for the like

Best wishes to you all, grato saluda, Herb

These tall ships always fascinate me Herb, so this is a definite like. In fact it was the Baltic Op Sail 2010 that seduced me into the hike along the waterfront when I was last in Amsterdam. I thought this ship looked kind of familiar looked kind of familiar, so I went digging through my files and look what I found. I also have a whole series of Op Sail 2012 held here in the Hampton Roads area which starts with this panorama.

Hi again Mark - looks like we think alike with tall ships. I don't get to see too many, although I should get to Liverpool one day to see the tall ships there once year. Cheers again for your links.

YOLANDA, welcome to my gallery. Always great to see new visitors here, especially those that enjoy my pictures so much. I much appreciate the visit, comment and like. Please call again.
