TALL SHIPS, BLYTH, NORTHUMBERLAND
In 2005, the Tall Ships visited the Tyne and Blyth, and I was commissioned to photograph the event. This particular ship was both imposing and majestic as it entered the River Blyth, and though I made many images in the harbour, I also sailed down the North East coast to the Tyne, and returned on her. It was a great adventure, and a privilege, as I hope these images show. The Dar Mlodziezy (or "The Gift of Youth") is a large Polish sail training ship, launched in 1982 in Gdansk. It was built to train Polish marine cadets and to compete in Tall Ship Races.
