The early morning that the Russian Tall Ship 'Kruzenshtern' sailed in for a port call to Flushing, Zeeland, The Netherlands, the sun tried to peek through the mist, causing this surrealist color of the sky.

Very well composed and beautiful photo. That sky brings out the ship's details nicely. I see the "singing" tubes on shore and that part of land looks strange because of the composition.

Smooth seas do not make skilful sailors.

Nature in all her glory is my uplift on life and so is my love of photography. sandi ♪ ♫

I'm really digging the contrast of upright lines and the seemingly blank space between. This is exceptional.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

Fantastic use of negative space, Cornelius. The photo does look like an illustration with that large plain peach sky. A Russian boat you say? Is Donald Trump at the helm?

Unusual - I don't know that I've ever seen a peach colored sky before - but what a magnificent tall ship!

Are those pillars the music wind sculptures I've seen before?

Oh sorry C I missed your upload earlier on, are the Ruskies coming? I like the low light and hue of the overcast sky, while the masts and long poles make for an unusual combination!

Nice one. (o:

The future of this planet will be silence since mankind is too busy destroying it. BTW find the classic definition of Caedes here. Tutty bye for bye now. (o:

Referring to Alex's comment above: you're right Alex. It's called a 'wind organ' and sounds wonderful/terrible (depends on someone's musical taste, ☺ ) when there's a strong wind or storm.

Th stark sky makes a perfect backdrop for the beautiful masts.
It is a delight to view Cornelius

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

A magnificent looking tall ship, must have been wonderful seeing it come into port. Like those colours & see you weren't the only one watching
