    Holy Smokes!! Look at those four guys reefing the sail. The photographer looks like he is at their level. And that's no Instamatic camera he's using.

    I recall reading that Turner had devised a sort of gimbal device that he hauled up along with his camera, allowing him to level the horizon and lessen the potential for blurring of the image. Truly a remarkable shutterman and clearly dedicated to his craft and his subject matter.
