Ahoy there.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Just at the side of the Göta Kanal in Gothenburg, Sweden lies this memorial to the age of sail, albeit on land. In an case, making for an attractive photo in this contre-jour misty setting. Enjoy.

Dušan Bezděk, DJ, Marlene,PiGi, Andy and Brian. Thank you all for another visit. I was surprised to see this laid out on concrete besides the Maritime Museum area in Gothenburg. From a distance it really looked like a tall ship. I took a few photos, one displayed in monochrome in my Flckr site. Cheers for the awards.

Best wishes, Herb
