    This is a bit off topic but I think still relevant, to the high north imagery in this thread.

    "Being Caribou" is a fascinating book made into a documentary documentary film, produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

    The subject is caribou migration and how two humans dropped themselves into the wilderness to record it.

    One of my pastimes is photographing cargo ships passing through the Welland Canal on the St Lawrence Seaway.

    Thank you Iriana, it beats me too how these ships stay upright. They often come through empty so there is only around 15 feet in the water.... Like this one...

    You can see the propeller, rudder etc. I admit, this one has pumped its ballast out to enter the dry dock at Port Weller, but ..... wow..that's balance.

    Here is our classic, wooden 1959 Herreshoff ketch.

    We brought her from California to Alaska. 2500 miles on ocean. It was a thrilling experience.

    It amazes me too. They must have a super heavy ballast to keep them upright.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm really enjoying seeing your images. Please keep them coming. They are interesting. :)

    Is that a Jolly Roger I see flying in the second picture?

    I know what you mean about 'classic', my first boat was a Georgian Steeler, 1954, all rosewood and gorgeous fittings. Deep V, double walled steel hull, 55 footer, twin Chrysler 190hp engines, trim tabs. I bought her in Peterborough and took her down to Lake Ontario and on to Bronte Harbour in Burlington. It too was an adventure and 300 gallons of gas. Something to be said about sail..... Sorry all pics are 35mm, I must have them converted. I sold her in '93 for $4,000 more than I paid 8 years earlier.

    Yes, it is the Jolly Roger....

    I would love to see your Georgian Steeler. She sounds beautiful. Can you take a picture of a picture of her and post that? I do that sometimes.

    This is her all mahogany main cabin. We lived in board for 3.5 months while preparing her for the trip and while cruising. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    Barn Swallows that decided to make my home....their home. Porch area at the front door, photographed through the transom above.

    There are five babies in there, four visible.

    .

    You're so lucky to be able to see them grow and maybe even see them take their first flight. Nice and heartwarming.
