Dutch Tall Ships (In the Twilight Zone)

Welcome back to the third post of my tall ships series. After the open day at Port Adelaide finished, I ducked across the other side of the Port River hoping to get some good late afternoon/twilight shots of the moored ships.

If you have just arrived at this post, you may wish to first explore my two earlier tall ship posts:

The Initial Encounter
Port Adelaide Open Day

I’ve probably said enough about the ships in those earlier posts, so I’ll just dive into the photos.  Presented broadly in chronological order, so you can follow the changing mood as the light started out as a golden sunset and then faded to blue.

Gear

Camera was my Pentax K-x, but with a mixed bag of lens in use.

The early part of this post was shot with my Pentax DA55-300 F4-5.8 telezoom, then as the light fell, I briefly turned to my 1980 era Pentax M 20mm F4 prime.  Finally I switched to my usual walkabout lens, the Tamron 17-50 F2.8.  The M 20mm isn’t the sharpest lens in my bag, but the colours it can produce are just something else.  The final image above is the one from the M 20mm.

All images were shot using a tripod.

    Thanks for sharing these three posts. The sets are extremely well done, and tell the story of these tall ships from Fremantle to Williamstown. I missed seeing them in Adelaide, there were other things on, so this has filled the gap – many thanks!

      Thanks Andy for your kind words. I’ve posted the fourth installment now, as the ships sailed out of Adelaide. They were a truly great sight. In a quiet moment I will have a closer explore of your blog. In the meantime, I’ve become a follower.
