Copper Bottom

The Cutty Sark from below showing the hull and the amazing supports and 'glass sea' that is sits upon. It's a part of the National Maritime Museum. This is an old shot from 2013 shot with my K-r and Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6.

Nice shot. The SS Great Britain in Bristol is displayed in a very similar manner.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Looks like they did a pretty good restoration after the fire! As David says it looks very similar to the SS GB!

Thanks all for your comments. When the museums re-open, I can highly recommend a visit to the NMM and the Cutty Sark exhibit in particular. It has been beautifully done, and as Paul noted, they have done a fantastic job of the restoration after the fire of 2007.
