The Tall Ship Dewaruci

Today we return to the Star Spangled Sailabration held in Baltimore (mid-June 2012) that marked the bicentennial of the war of 1812 and inspire Francis Scott Key to write the U S National Anthem.  Tall ships sailed into port from around the globe for this event and provided quite a spectacle. The KRI Dewaruci, operated by the Indonesian Navy, is shown below.

In a previous post we had a peek at this tall ship in the background of this boat rental image.

These massive vessels are truly a sight to behold and are always immaculately maintained.

Construction of this ship began in 1932 and was completed 20 years later, after a suspension of the project during World War II. It's overall condition gives no hint of it's true age.

Below we have a black and white version.

Both images were pulled into Lightroom 4 where a landscape preset was applied before making other slider adjustments. The B&W was also converted in LR4.

Thanks for clicking by, see you soon. ;-)
