Lines

I find the view up into the standing rigging of a sailing ship against the sky one of the most beautiful things. If this were a ship still under sail, you would even be able to see proper (clew) lines for clewing up the square sails, but this is the Viking, permanently moored in the harbour of Gothenburg/Sweden. But without the sails, the rigging serves as lines directing the gaze to the mast top
and my imagination far beyond... ;o)

That is lovely.
:o) Thanks!
What a brilliant reply to the prompt - and what a fabulous picture!
Thanks! We both love anything to do with (historic) ships and sailing, and no museum, museum ship, historic ship etc. we come across is left out, and, of course, photographed. You have there a lovely icon, btw.
Ooooh, good one.
Thanks!
Very beautiful!
Isn't it? The only thing not visible is the nice sound the rigging parts make in the slight wind.
It is lovely! Great photo!
Thanks! :o)
I love the photo--so colorful and interesting.
Thank you!
What a great shot! Looks so inviting to go sailing. :)
It does, doesn't it? The Viking no longer can, as you probably now, since she wouldn't fit under the bridges over the river, and her insides-converted-to-hotel-and-restaurant probably don't hold the necessary technic any longer. But just being there, feeling the gentle sway and hearing all the sounds makes it easy to dream oneself away on a trip.
sailing ships are wonderful and this shows off one of their cool qualities so very well!
Thanks! :o)
Ooh, good one:)
Thanks! :o)
