Marine Photography

While doing some more research for MacMillan Judge, Privateer, I came across Michael J. Berman’s website. He has some brilliant photographs of sailing ships there to be seen. Here is a link It is very difficult to take pictures in the marine environment, let alone of sailing ships. The weather, the vessels, and any number of other factors can conspire against you. However, I’m impressed with Mr. Berman’s work, especially the black and white images.

Among them, you’ll find one of the Pride of Baltimore II. This is a topsail schooner, much like the one MacMillan Judge finds laid up in Spain. Judge buys it from a Spanish nobleman named Don Francisco. After some refit and repair, he and the crew rename her Fletcher. No need to tell you any more, you’ll have to read the book.

Please check out Mr. Berman’s site. You won’t be disappointed.
