Ghost ship…


[Apologies to subscribers for the re-post, however WordPress deleted my title on the first go-round]

Lake Ontario, 2009. While enjoying lovely sights of the beautiful city of Toronto some summers back, my family and I took a cruise across its pristine Great Lake. Most travelers’ eyes were on the disappearing skyline of the city, the enormity of the CN Tower slowly miniaturizing as we pushed out to sea, but for one brief moment I caught a glimpse the other direction of a massive, old-style sailing ship, far off in the distance. It nearly looked like a mirage, vague and fuzzy as it was on the horizon. I quickly zoomed out to 300mm, and captured this fleeting shot. Mysteriously, as I trained my eye to click off a second frame, the ship, quite literally, disappeared. Poof! Was it the ghost of Henry Hudson, perhaps? Or some modern schooner that simply captured my overactive imagination? I’ll never know, but the image makes me smile to this day. Hope you enjoy…

  1. That’s OK viewing it makes it twice as nice and it didn’t disappear on us.
