Elissa Bowsprit

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.


  1. I like this! I really like the wedge out of the cloud and how the bow seems to point towards it. Did you put in another sky?

  2. I like this too, nice shot, I'd happily hang it on my wall.
