Cutty Sark

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Cutty Sark
Cutty Sark
Greenwich London.
The Cutty Sark is one of the fastest clippers, built in 1869, at the end of the age of sail, right before the introduction of steam propulsion.
The opening of the Suez Canal shortened the route to China, and obviated the need for her use in the tea trade. She then turned to the import of wool from Australia.
As a museum, she is now displayed on a controversial glass structure in which she hangs.

Very interesting. I remember putting a model of it together as a kid. Didn't know it was a museum. Why is the glass controversial? Excellent POV.

I could have sworn I commented on this one, Rony, because I surely remember it! I thought it was fantastic then and knew it was destined to go on. Anyway I think it is marvelous - love the POV, all the great lines and curves and the little folks down below. Fantastic finalist that I'm sure will be a winner! BIG Congrats!
