Sky Watch Friday - Through the rigging

Three years ago we took our grandsons to Baltimore's Inner Harbor for sight seeing. I took this picture of the sky looking up through the rigging of the USS Constellation. (Captain Michael was at the helm.) The sailing ship launched in 1854, became a National Historic Landmark in 1955.

Hi Lew. Lucky boys to have you. That's a day they will always remember!
What a great ship.

I absolutely love tall ships, one day I'll get to take a canon of a different kind of board. Nice shots, thanks for stopping by Photonic Harmony, all the best, Andy.

Seeing the skies how they were seen so many years ago - through the rigging of a tall ship.
Beautiful image!

Very, very beautiful. I admire those who can sail a boat. Looks very complicated!

We may be kindred souls, I had a mast in one of my Skywatch photos, too. I really like yours.
