Ghost ships

A Ghost ship, also known as a phantom ship, is a ship with no living crew aboard; it may be a ghostly vessel in folklore or fiction, such as the Flying Dutchman, or a real derelict found adrift with its crew missing or dead, like the Mary Celeste.

To create the ghost-like effect these images were taken in low light conditions using slow shutter speeds.

The images below are taken with Ghost ships in mind.
