Seaport photography

Photographing ships is possibly the most rewarding one, mainly when there are sailing ships.

If live by a seaport where sailing ships dock, to shoot moments like this is relatively easy.

The watchword is: always have a camera with you.

This link has some which are pretty good: http://seaportphoto.com/tallships2008.aspx

Subs carrier

This one here is the SMS Vulcan in 1919, Imperial Navy of Kaiser Willhem. Its task: to transport submarines.

Yes, a ship to transport submarines, and it is not a new development, it was built before WWI.

Here it can be seen letting subs in the Kiel Channel.

This and many other photos of the war can be found in http://www.gwpda.org/photos, a great repository of such photos. The photo above can be seen in http://www.deutsche-schutzgebiete.de/sms_vulcan.htm

Transportador de submarinos

Este de aquí es el SMS Vulcan en 1919, de la Armada Imperial del Kaiser Guillermo. Su cometido: transportar submarinos.

Si me hubieran dicho de barcos que llevaban submarinos de aquí para allá, no me lo hubiera creído, pero mire usted.

Además se le puede ver aquí en plena función de sembrar submarinos en el canal de Kiel.

Esta y muchas otras fotos de la Gran Guerra se pueden encontrar en http://www.gwpda.org/photos, un gran depósito de fotos de esa guerra. La primera se puede ver en http://www.deutsche-schutzgebiete.de/sms_vulcan.htm
