The old and the new
I'm obliged to the Daily Mail in England for publishing this photograph of a sailing ship passing through a field of electrical generation windmills off the British coast. It brings back memories of sailing, and nostalgia for the days when wind was the only "fuel" in town as far as ships were concerned.
The ship was on her way to join about 70 others for the Tall Ships Race this weekend. Wish I could be there to see it!
The picture below shows some of the Tall Ships at the start of the 2007 race. It and many more high-resolution photographs are available here - but don't click the link if your Internet connection is slow or limited! They're very large files.
