In order to participate in this week’s photo challenge, we had to post only pictures we took on the day of our post. We couldn’t cheat and go into our archives. Last night I bought a new camera with a 42X zoom lens. This morning I took that camera down to the Chesapeake Bay and photographed some Navy ships that were headed into Norfolk and a couple of tall ships that were anchored near First Landing State Park. The ship movement is all part of OpSail 2012, a gathering of naval vessels and tall ships from all over the world. Tomorrow I hope to go back to the Chesapeake and take more pictures when the rest of the tall ships should arrive. Here are a few pictures from this morning.
This first one is without using the zoom. You obviously can’t see much.
Here are the same tall ships using my amazing new zoom lens.
Here are some of the Navy ships that were crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel.
