USS Clamp, ARS-33

USS Clamp, ARS-33

On our boating adventure in the Suisun Bay, we toured the mothballed fleet, aka the ghost fleet.  There is a wide variety of ships and levels of decay.  This particular ship is the USS Clamp, which is a Diver-class rescue and salvage ship from WWII.   Her fate is to sit next to lots of other vessels indefinitely.  This is a three-exposure HDR image taken while on another boat, which was moving while I was trying to be my own steady-cam.

  4. This is a really great shot! I wouldn’t have guessed HDR because the processing is so subtly. You really captured the ‘ghost fleet’ feeling. Just wonderful!

    • I was going for, as I usually do with HDR, something closer to what I see when looking at a scene like this. Yes, this has some post-hdr processing to emphasize the mood, but I like subtle. Thank you, Tracy.
