I am reminded by the shear violence and beauty of the sea, the stoic nature of those's whose living depends on it and the bravery of those who strive to rescue in dire moments. Thank you

Where's the Flying Dutchman?
Other than that, good job on the ship and the stormy water.
You bested me on the water.
btw, the reason i asked the question is because the Cape is actually where the Dutchman is said to haunt during storms like this one.

I've made many ghost ships, however I avoid to make directly the "Flying Dutchman" considering it too trivial. In another work a deviant recognized a ghost ship from Chile - the "Caleuche" and this is how I like it, people to have freedom for imaginative interpretation. This exactly work is an illustration for a book and there are other ships there. "Cape of Good Hope" is known best for the extremely bad weather and so it is in the book, and in my work.

Oh well that's cool.
I'll have to look for the one with the "Caleuche".
Your ships are good from looking at the Black Pearl.

Probably this one - [link]. However I didn't have a purpose to make "Caleuche", some deviant thought it is in a comment.

Ju looked a it, does look like a ghost ship, but I think the Caleuche was described as a different type of ship according to eyewitnesses, but anyways, GOOD JOB, I love it!

Just want to repeat, I do not pretended to make Caleuche or whatever concrete ship. Somebody in the comments told it looks like. When I make a concrete ship, usually I say it in the comment.

Superb piece... Dauntingly taunting towers of ocean walling their way, surrounding the ship. Wanting to swallow, not knowing this warrior of wood will leave a nasty aftertaste. Victory will be on the side of pirating hands, leading this stunning crusader of the sea towards her destiny

Fantastic! :clap: The closer viewpoint gives more of a feeling of being in on the action, more intense and dramatic. I also like the driving rain and the way the light falls on the rocks.

Thanks dear. Yes wanted a classic diagonal composition. Btw today a man from South Africa told me in another site, that although he likes the picture, the weather right now is fine there, not a sign of a storm :-) Yet this cape is really "Cape of storms" and sure I needed it as this is an illustration.
