From Wiki:

The RRS Discovery was the last wooden three-masted

ship to be built in Britain. Designed for Antarctic research,

she was launched in 1901. Her first mission was the British

National Antarctic Expedition, carrying Robert Falcon Scott 

and Ernest Shackleton on their first, successful journey to

the Antarctic, known as the Discovery Expedition. She is now

the centerpiece of visitor attraction in her home, Dundee.

    Oh, that is an excellent capture. I love tall ships. And I’ve visited this one in my journeys. Beautifully captured with the colours.

      My first experience with tall ships came as a girl in the form of the HMS Bounty, the ship used to film the movie “Mutiny on the Bounty” which was then docked in St. Petersburg, Florida – heady stuff for a gal from Ohio.

      She, the Bounty, still calls St. Petersburg home, but is currently on an extended voyage; see the following link for location details: http://www.tallshipbounty.org/
