Dancing the waves - 1920

This three masted full rigged ship is furling its sails in an attempt to avoid hitting the rocks on its port side. I wonder if it succeeded? This heritage image from my collection has been restored digitally to a very high standard to remove paper surface tears, scratches etc and is suitable for big enlargements. NOTE the irregular horizon line is exactly as photographed. The ship is around deep sea rocks which cause large surges in the water level.
