HMS Bounty leaving South Shields

Bye Bye Bounty

The replica of HMS Bounty (which was made for the film “Mutiny on the Bounty”) left the River Tyne just a couple of days after it arrived at the pier at South Shields. She is seen here accompanied by the Pilot boat and a small yacht at around 6.00 p.m. early evening.

The “mood” and the “misty clouds” were added using cloud rendering on a separate layer in Photoshop.

  2. hi, I’m Dennis in Florida. I’m a former Bounty crew member. Bounty is in the UK on the first leg of a two year round the world tour. She’ll be heading south down the Atlantic Ocean and eventually find her way in South Africa and then on to Tahiti for the 220th Anniversary of Captain Bligh visiting Tahiti many years ago. Thank you for the nice photo of Bounty. She’s in my heart !

  3. Thankyou for the nice photo. I am a big, no, huge fan of the HMS Bounty. She is very dear to my heart. I am very proud of her present journey. Photo’s, videos, and blogs are greatly appreciated as she travels the world. It is good to see her when the opportunities arise.

  4. This vessel and the story behind bring back memories to me since I read the book many many years ago. I remember it was by chance and without even knowing there was a movie. The title had something to do with Pitcairn Island but I can recall which one was it, the Bounty was not part of the title. It was quite an amusing reading. And your picture revives a little what I had in mind.

  5. Good photo. I thought the ‘mist’ effect was courtesy of the North Sea.

  6. Beautiful picture!
    If possible would you please contact me to see if we can work out some arrangement whereby we might use your picture, plus the treatment, plus the words “Merry Christmas” as our Pitcairn Islands Study Center Christmas card for 2009. I’d surely appreciate a contact about this possibility. Herbert Ford, Director, Pitcairn Islands Study Center, Pacific Union College, 1 Angwin Avenue, Angwin, California 94508 USA
