    A few facts:

    Bluenose II is acknowledged to have the largest working mainsail in the world, measuring 4,150 square feet (386 m² ), Total sail area measures over 11,000 square feet (1036 m² ).

    Bluenose II was built from the identical plans as Bluenose, in the same shipyard of Smith and Rhuland in Lunenburg N.S. and by some of the same men.

    How fast can she go? The top speed logged under sail is 16 knots.

    Well, its still not full sail, but it is a rarity to she her with even this much sail up in Halifax harbour. Usually she is leaving the harbour in the morning, and by the time they have the sails up she is well out of reach for my short lenses. I happened to catch this today before work.

    mariush - I'm not sure what you mean by your comment?

    I don't know if it is because I am Canadian, but it is just such a beautifull schooner. The last shoot is great

    JEFFB, don't get me wrong :). The photo is OK - technically, composition is correct.. but it calls no excitement on me. It's just like the family or friends photoes - we all like them because we recall past moments, we know photographed people - but if You lokk at somebodys elses photoes - do you have the same feelings?
    I'm sure You like this photo - but try to thik as somebody who see this photo without Your memories. For him/her - it's just a document.

    I hope You got what I mean :). Take a look at those examples (the photoes I like - suprising) - maybe it'd make it clearer :)
