This is an early morning view at Toronto, s Harbour. The boats are covered by plastic during winter time, in middle of picture -schooner Kajama.
Kajama was built at Nobiskrug shipyard in Rendsburg, Germany and launched on July 26, 1930 under the name Wilfred. She was a three-masted cargo schooner as you see her now. Captain Wilhem Wilckens was her owner and master and he operated from the homeport of Hamburg from 1930 until 1960.
In 1960 she was purchased by Captain Karl Asmussen of Egersund, Denmark. Captain Asmussen renamed the ship Kajama after his two sons and his wife Kaywe, Jan and Maria. The ship continued to work under sail until the mid 1970's, at which time the Asmussens converted her to a strictly motor-driven vessel. Throughout the years from 1930 until 1998 Kajama traded general cargo. Her voyages went as far south as Bilboa in Northwest Spain, throughout western Europe, and Scandinavia, and above the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway.
In January 1999 she was purchased by Great Lakes Schooner Company of Toronto. After preparation for sea she steamed to England, Azores and on to Toronto. Kajama underwent a major overhaul and restoration to her original profile in just over ten months. She is now operating on Lake Ontario, taking pride of place in Toronto Harbour. She offers public day sails, educational programs and corporate charters.

the combination of lights and reflections against the night sky are fantastic and have helped create a very atmospheric picture. the skyscrappers overlooking the boats in the harbour make for a great composition.
have a lovely evening,

bardzo ladny widok portu z wiezowcami w tle. Dobre nocne wykonanie. Jest tu klimat spokoju. Ladne swiatla i odbicia w wodzie. Bdb jakosc mimo nietypowego oswietlenia.

This shows an interesting combination of the ultra-modern and the traditional. The schooner in the centre of the shot is only 80-odd years old, but built in a style that goes back a lot further; the skyscrapers look very cutting-edge. And of course the mix of light-sources creates another level of interest.
