Day 35 Leeuwin II Tall Ship

Leeuwin rigging

My first photo of the Leeuwin (lucky shot from the air)
Leeuwin from City Beach

The sail training ship Leeuwin II is a three mast barquentine, and I have enjoyed taking photos of her over the years.

In my first photo of her I was actually flying a Cessna 172 and took the shot one handed so I was surprised that it wasn't motion blurred.

Also the photo was taken with an early DSLR D70 and non Nikon lens.

I was also lucky to catch the Tall Ship sailing south along City Beach towards Fremantle and look a few good shots and Julia even had one of the shots from this shoot placed on canvas and it looks great.
