On Saturday I ventured down to Pier 19 along the Galveston Ship Channel. Before I began an epic search for interesting bird photos, I took this shot of the Elissa bowsprit. March in Galveston means Featherfest and Elissa Day Sails. It's a good time to be a photographer. Nikon D200, 170mm, 1/1250 sec at f/8; black and white conversion done with Nik Silver Efex.
