The USS Torsk (SS-423) is docked at the Baltimore Maritime Museum and is one of two Tench Class submarines still located inside the United States. Nicknamed the Galloping Ghost of the Japanese Coast, the vessel is the only ship of the United States Navy to be named for the torsk, a food fish of the North Atlantic. Her keel was laid down on 7 June 1944 at the Portsmouth Navy Yard. She was launched on 6 September 1944 sponsored by Mrs. Allen B. Reed, and commissioned on 16 December 1944 with Commander Bafford E. Lewellen in command. Completed on the last day of 1944, Torsk trained out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Newport, Rhode Island, and New London, Connecticut, until 11 February 1945, when she headed for Florida. On 16 February, the submarine arrived at Port Everglades, Florida, where she provided services for antisubmarine research. She departed that Florida port on 20 February, transited the Panama Canal, and reached Hawaii on 23 March. After a repair and training period, she got underway from Pearl Harbor for her first war patrol. Torsk paused briefly at Guam en route to an area off Kii Suido which she reached on 11 May and began lifeguard duty. Air contacts were few in this period, and the submarine found no opportunity to conduct rescue operations. Toward midnight on 11 May, she set course for her patrol area off the northeastern coast of Honshū. She arrived there on 13 May and, for two days, attempted to contact other members of the wolf pack, Lewellen's Looters. On 16 May, she made rendezvous with submarines Sand Lance (SS-381) and Cero (SS-225). For more than a fortnight, their careful coverage of the east coast of Honshū turned up nothing more interesting than naval mines. On 2 June, while patrolling between Honshū and Hokkaidō, Torsk came upon a small coastal minelayer. The submarine fired six torpedoes—which the small vessel avoided by maneuvering—and then dove and rigged for depth charges which did not materialize. Torsk had another disappointing encounter on 4 June when, while patrolling off Kobe Saki, she fired four torpedoes at a 700-ton freighter without scoring. The following day, she set her course homeward, stopped at Midway Island on 11 June, and returned to Pearl Harbor on 16 June. After refitting and the installation of new equipment, the submarine got underway for her second war patrol on 17 July. She spent the first two days of August at Guam and set her course for the Sea of Japan. She passed through the minefields of Tsushima Strait on 10 August and, on the morning of 11 August, rescued seven Japanese merchant seamen who had survived the sinking of the Koue Maru some four days before. Early that afternoon, the submarine entered her patrol area and, on the following morning off Dogo Island, Torsk made a submerged periscope attack which sank a small coastal freighter. On 13 August, she patrolled off Ando Saki and, after sighting a number of fishing boats during the morning, sighted another small freighter which she promptly sank. Later the same day, she made an unsuccessful attack on a cargo ship as it entered Wakasa Wan; then dodged through a 75-boat fishing fleet, and outdistanced the maru's escort. Off Amarubi Saki on the morning of 14 August, Torsk sighted a medium cargo ship and took up the chase. A 745-ton Kaibokan-class patrol escort vessel accompanied the freighter to seaward, presenting the submarine with a tempting target. At 1035, as the freighter and her escort approached Kasumi Ko, Torsk launched one of the new experimental Mark 28 torpedoes at the escorting ship. Minutes later, the fish found its mark; an explosion bent the stern of the frigate up to a 30 degree angle, and shortly thereafter the target sank. As the freighter entered the harbor half an hour later, Torsk attempted to sink her but was unsuccessful, possibly because the torpedoes struck undetected reefs near the mouth of the harbor. Around noon, another frigate appeared, apparently a reinforcement which had been called in. Continuing her aggressive action, Torsk fired a Mark 28 torpedo at the frigate which had already detected the submarine's presence. Commander Lewellen then initiated deep submergence procedures and ordered the crew to rig for silent running. After a tense five minutes, she reached 400 feet (120 m) and there she launched another torpedo, this time the new acoustic Mark 27. Almost immediately, a loud explosion announced that the first torpedo had found its mark, and a minute later a second explosion sounded, followed by strong breaking up noises. The secret new torpedoes had proven their worth in battle and Torsk was credited, not only with two enemy warships, but also with sinking the last Japanese warship sunk in World War II. Held down by enemy planes and patrol vessels, the submarine remained submerged more than seven hours. Then, she surfaced and headed for the Noto peninsula. On 15 August, following four highly successful days of aggressive patrolling, Torsk received word of the cessation of hostilities. She continued her patrol in the Sea of Japan, conducting visual and photo surveillance and destroying floating mines. On 31 August, what was thought to be a torpedo wake was sighted, an indicator that not everyone had heard the news of the war's ending. The submarine set her course for the Mariana Islands on 1 September, passed through Tsushima Straits on 3 September, and arrived at Guam on 9 September, successfully completing her second war patrol. She departed the Marianas on the next day, proceeded via Pearl Harbor and the Canal Zone, and arrived at New London in mid-October. For the next seven years, she operated out of that port serving as a training ship, participating in exercises and tests, and occasionally making naval reserve training cruises. In June 1949, she was assigned to Submarine Squadron 2; and; in the summer of 1950, she was deployed to the Mediterranean Sea. The ship returned to New London in the fall for fleet exercises and, the following year, extended her operations into the Caribbean Sea. Early in 1952, she completed her conversion to a Fleet Snorkel submarine and was deployed again to the Mediterranean that summer. Returning on 27 November, she continued operations out of New London ranging from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Havana, Cuba, as she trained prospective submarine personnel and laid exercise mine fields. In 1955, she was reassigned to Submarine Squadron 6 at Norfolk, Virginia. There, her duties included services to aircraft and surface ships to help them hone their skills in antisubmarine warfare. She made frequent Caribbean voyages and participated in Operation Springboard. In June 1959, she proceeded via the Saint Lawrence Seaway to the Great Lakes, visited various ports on Lake Ontario and Lake Michigan, then returned to the Norfolk operating area in mid-August. In the early 1960s, she made Mediterranean deployments; joined Commonwealth countries in Exercise New Broom X, and continued her duties in training antisubmarine forces in the Atlantic. During the Cuban Missile Crisis in the fall of 1962, she patrolled in support of the blockade of that Caribbean island. On 4 March 1968 the veteran submarine was decommissioned and, following modifications at the Boston Navy Yard, was assigned to the Washington Navy Yard for use in training reserves. Torsk operated out of Washington until 1971 and, on 15 December of that year, was struck from the Naval Vessel Register. On 26 September 1972, she was turned over to the state of Maryland to be used as a museum ship in the Inner Harbor at Baltimore, Maryland. It is currently part of the Baltimore Maritime Museum. Torsk received two battle stars for World War II service and the Navy Commendation Medal for her service during the Cuban Missile Crisis. She set the all-time record of career dives, at 11,884. She is also the only submarine converted in the Fleet Snorkel program that has the original snorkel.
Submarine USS Torsk - Baltimore Harbour, Maryland, USA
Made by lyon photography
1944 USS Torsk (AGSS 423)I walked around a corner and to my surprise, there was a u-boat right in front of me. Well as it turns out, not exactly a u-boat, but it really looked like one and everything. The techi stuff.... Commissioned on 16 December 1944, USS TORSK was built at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and was one of only ten Tench Class fleet type submarines to see service in World War II. Deployed to the Pacific, TORSK operated from Pearl Harbor and made two war patrols off Japan during the spring and summer of 1945. During her first patrol, which lasted from 15 April to 16 June 1945, TORSK carried out plane guard duties for American aircraft engaged in bombing raids on Japan. TORSK was underway on her second war patrol from 17 July until 9 September 1945 and was credited with sinking three Japanese ships before the end of hostilities. The first of these, a small freighter, was torpedoed on the afternoon of 13 August, and the following day TORSK sank two Japanese coastal defense frigates which turned out to be the last enemy warships torpedoed in all of World War II. After World War II, TORSK alternated between duties as a training boat at the Navy?s Submarine School in New London, CT, and active deployments in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. In 1952, the boat underwent a fleet snorkel conversion, and in the mid 1950s received equipment for use in the testing and development of the Regulus missile. In 1960, TORSK received a Presidential Unit Citation for service during the Lebanon Crisis, and in 1962 earned the Navy Commendation Medal for actions during the Cuban Blockade. Decommissioned on 4 March 1968, with an impressive record of over 10,600 career dives, TORSK arrived in Baltimore to serve as a museum and memorial in 1972.

Baltimore - Inner Harbor: Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse
Made by wallyg
The Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse, also known as B-4222, built in 1855, is the oldest screw-pile lighthouse in Maryland. It was initially installed on a shallow shoal, Seven Foot Knoll, at the mouth of the Patapsco River, whose northern reach is the Baltimore Harbor, where the now-decommissioned lighthouse was transferred in 1988. Today it is part of the Baltimore Maritime Museum at Pier 5 on the Inner Harbor. Constructed of 1-inch rolled iron, the lighthouse consists of three main sections. The gallery deck was located 9 feet above the average high tide waters. The house was the second section, sitting directly atop the gallery deck. This is where the keeper and his family would live. Atop the housing area was the third section of the lighthouse, the light beacon. A 4th order Fresnel lens, visible for 12 miles, was housed in the small light compartment. The first requests for a light came in 1848, with initial appropriations in 1851. Delays in planning and bidding pushed the start of construction to 1854. Total construction costs came to $43,000 by its completion the following year. Most parts were prefabricated in Baltimore at the Murray and Hazelhurst iron foundry. The parts were then shipped to Seven Foot Knoll by boat where they were assembled atop of the screw piles In 1875 the original house was replaced with the current cylindrical structure made of wrought iron plates. Ice, the perennial threat to screw-pile structures, caused damage in 1884 and 1894, leading to the piling of 790 cubic yards of riprap around the piles. The light was automated in 1949, and fell into disrepair, eventually being supplanted by the usual skeleton tower. The Baltimore Maritime Museum (BMM), covering Piers 3 and 5 of the Inner Harbor, includes the ; the World War II-era submarine, USS Torsk (SS-423); and the lightship, Chesapeake.

USA - Baltimore - National Aquarium (Pacific Sea Nettle)
Made by Lo Scorpione
After New York, Boston and Washington D.C., I am now in Baltimore. The main attraction here is the National Aquarium, reputedly the best exhibit on marine life in the entire States. I think some aquariums will rear at this, but hey, I didn't invent it ;-) National Aquarium, Baltimore After paying the hefty entrance fee I was expecting incredible exhibits and surprising facts for the visitor, but the first 10 minutes inside were such a disappointment, I even took out my ticket to see if there was any 15min refund policy on the back! The whole place was just crowded with overweight Americans on holiday, snacking on burgers and ice-cream, clogging all corridors and passages and making an enourmous noise. And nothing to see either, just a couple of giant, kindergarten-style panels with 2 random facts on jellyfishes. I even had to que to get into the first exhibition room! But then, once inside the jellyfish room, the crowds dispersed, like fog on an early summer morning, and I was left to marvel at these colourful creatures. And to take in all the amazing explanations on the threat they have come to pose to marine - and by extent all - life on this planet. Due to pollution, over-fishing of their predators and global warming, these little bastards are taking over control of large areas of the oceans, ferociously killing entire fish populations on their way. Not so cute anymore, huh? Pacific sea nettle Going by the latin name of Chrysaora fuscescens, this particular jellyfish is quite popular at aquariums, as they are brightly coloured (crowds love this) and require little maintenance (staff love this). They can reach a bell diametere of over 1 meter, though most specimen are smaller than 50cm, with tentacles as long as 4 meter or more. They can be found along the coast of California and Oregon, and have been spreading north to Alaska and west to Japan.
Scarlet Ibis in Jungle(?)
Made by f0rbe5
Actually, in the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. The spray comes from a piping system keeping the humidity up in the jungle exhibit area. The glass roof/wall can be seen in the background, along with a large concrete pillar to the left. The Scarlet Ibis (Eudocimus ruber), sometimes also referred to as Out of Gamut Ibis, is a species of ibis that inhabits tropical South America and also Trinidad and Tobago. It is the national bird of Trinidad and is featured on the Trinidad and Tobago coat of arms along with Tobago's national bird, the Rufous-vented Chachalaca. Adults are 56–61 cm long and weigh 650g. They are completely scarlet, except for black wing-tips. They nest in trees, laying 2-4 eggs. Their diet is fish, frogs, reptiles and crustaceans. A juvenile Scarlet Ibis is grey and white; as it grows, the ingestion of red crabs in the tropical swamps gradually produces the characteristic scarlet plumage. The life span of Scarlet Ibis is approximately 15 years in the wild and 20 years in captivity. This species is very closely related to the American White Ibis and is sometimes considered conspecific with it. While the species may have occurred as a natural vagrant in southern Florida in the late 1800s, all recent reports of the species in North America have been of introduced or escaped birds. Eggs from Trinidad were placed in White Ibis nests in Hialeah Park in 1962, and the resulting population hybridised with the native ibis, producing pink ibises that are still occasionally seen. - from Wikipedia.
The National Aquarium at Baltimore, Baltimore, MD

A panoramic view of the National Aquarium in Baltimore, and the Power Plant complex to its left, as seen from under the World Trade Center of Baltimore. The all glass pavilion in the foreground houses the aquarium's Australian exhibit, while the main exhibits are housed in the triangular building to the rear. Not visible and located behind the main pavilion is a third pavilion for dolphins. The National Aquarium is a an excellent aquarium with many specimens, and is a very worthwhile visit. Also visible in the picture are the submarine USS Torsk and the lightship Chesapeake. A lightship is a conventional ship which acts as a lighthouse, usually anchored permanently and having no means of propulsion. This ship, built as Lightship 116, actually is one of many to have carried the Chesapeake name as lightships carry the names of the station. Built in 1930, Lightship 116 has actually carried the names Fenwick (for the Fenwick Island Shoal station), Chesapeake, LS-116 (when it served as an Examination and Guard Vessel during WWII, after which it returned to being the Chesapeake), and finally the Delaware when it served in Delaware Bay before being decommissioned in 1971. The USS Torsk, the last U-boat commissioned for WWII, also has an illustrious history. You can learn more at usstorsk.org/ Both the Torsk and the Chesapeake are part of the Baltimore Maritime Museum.

A longhorned cowfish taken at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. This strange little fish moved its fins like a hummingbird, but its body moved very slowly. It hovered there, blimplike, watching me take its picture. I could have sworn it was posing for me. If you view this large, you will notice its light blue polka dots. Wiki says: The boxfishes are a family, Ostraciidae, of squared, bony fish belonging to the order Tetraodontiformes, closely related to the pufferfishes and filefishes. They come in a variety of different colors, and are notable for the hexagonal or honeycomb patterns in their skin and skeletons. They swim in a rowing manner. Fish in the family are known variously as boxfishes, cofferfishes, cowfishes and trunkfishes. Boxfishes occupy the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans, generally at middle latitudes, although the common or buffalo trunkfish (Lactophrys trigonus) which lives mainly in Florida waters may be found as far north as Cape Cod. The cowfish variety Lactophrys quadricornis can grow to be 50 cm or less in size, but are generally smaller at higher latitudes. The hexagonal plate-like scales of these fish are fused together into a solid, triangular, box-like carapace, from which the fins and tail protrude. Young boxfishes have a more rounded in shape and may exhibit bright colors. Because of their body scale structure, boxfishes are limited to slow movements.
Upside-down Jellyfish, Cassiopea xamachana
Made by dKi photography (Mac'd)
Cassiopea xamachana is a jellyfish that is found in Bermuda, throughout the Caribbean Sea, and some areas of the warm western Atlantic Ocean (Sterrer, 1992; Fitt & Costley, 1998; Fleck & Fitt, 1999). The common name of this species is the upside-down jellyfish. Given its life style, it does not look like the typical jellyfish, appearing as a greenish gray-blue flower on the seafloor. It is found on the muddy bottoms of inshore bays and ponds (Sterrer, 1986) and is most commonly seen on Bermuda in Walsingham Pond and Harrington Sound (Sterrer, 1992). Because they live their lives on the bottom with large portions of their carbon and nutrition coming from their symbiotic zooxanthellae, they tend to be in shallow areas saturated with sunlight. This species reproduces through strobilation, similar to most other jellies, but with varying seasonality (Fitt & Costley, 1998). As with other cnidarians, C. xamachana has nematocysts covering its tentacles and digestive tract. It uses these stinging cells for both feeding and defense (Fitt & Costley, 1998). It is fairly common on the island and there are no specific Bermudian laws that protect C. xamachana. But it does make its home in several protected areas, leading to indirect protection of the species (Sterrer, 1992; Wood & Jackson, 2005).
Boats & Buildings in Baltimore
Made by Extra Medium
The one bad thing about traveling this time of year and trying to take pictures is that it gets dark so early. Add to the fact that I typically have to work during the day, when I get off at night... there really isn't much to shoot. But I forced myself over to the Federal Hill Park area of the city and shot the skyline with the boats in the foreground. Not too bad considering those boats aren't moving at all, and they could be. Plus, it was about 29 out and I was trying to push buttons with gloves on. I had a bunch of other things to shoot around here, but.... I got done early, which means... I go home early. Just 3 days here. I have some other shots from a state park from yesterday, but... I dunno, just don't seem up to my own standards. Almost like snapshots. But I might post one if nothing else, to remind me what cold weather, leaf-less trees and icy rivers look like. And seeing it in theft size lets you see just how sharp it is. Still love that D200, but I'm waiting to see what's going to happen on Dec. 1st Added the location to the map, for all you stalkers ------------------------------------------>

Can see more details when you . This is Baltimore's Inner Harbor at night, shot from Federal Hill Park, across the harbor. The building with the blue neon wave is the National Aquarium. I liked the way the neon reflected on the water, and the angle and lights up the street. Am loving the new lens! The distance across the harbor is very far from the park, but the lens makes it seem much closer. If you zoom in you'll even see folks sitting on benches enjoying the water. The sunset over Camden Yards was brilliant, and the O's were playing. Perfect night for a game. And, perfect night for long exposures (minus the wind, of course). Ant got some really great shots. You should check them out. I tagged them in the notes on this pic. He used a 17-40 mm for his shots, and you can just make out the blue wave of the aquarium in his west shot, to get a better idea of the distance we were away. Here are the specs for this shot: Camera: Canon EOS Rebel T1i Lens: EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM ISO Speed: 100 Focal Length: 200mm Exposure Value: -2 Aperture: f/32 Shutter Speed: 10 seconds Flash: Off, did not fire Post-processing: minor straightening

Please no multi-group invites or moving/flashing icons. Thanks. We took the plunge today and got an EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens. And, this is one of the pics from trying it out. Just having some fun. And, boy is it a fun lens! My new favorite. :) And, the first time shooting in weeks--very much needed. One of our f-friends, Eye*of*the*Beholder, is good at finding hearts in pics. The sky today was so clear--hardly any clouds at all. When I saw this cloud, I knew I had to catch it for her. So, Jeananne, this one's for you. My better-half and I had fun trying to find the right name for the photo. I heart lamp posts almost won (since I do have a lamp post collection here--don't know why :) But, he came up with heartlight, and it seemed right. And now I've got the Kenny Loggins song, Heartlight, stuck in my head. Could be worse. :) Happy Saturday, all! ISO 100 70mm Exp. -.33 f/10 1/640 sec Minor crop and a bit of color adjustment.

AF927 Sea Dragon
Made by listentoreason
Baltimore Aquarium. December 2001. Fascinating to watch - they gently tumble about but will suddenly implosively suck in any brine shrimp that drift too close to the snout. Wikipedia: Leafy sea dragon: The leafy sea dragon, Phycodurus eques, is a marine fish related to the seahorse. It is the only member of the genus Phycodurus. These creatures are found around southern and western Australia and generally remain in shallow, temperate waters. Their name comes from their appearance, with long leaf-like protrusions coming from all over the body. These protrusions are not used for propulsion; they serve only as camouflage. The leafy sea dragon propels itself by means of a pectoral fin on the ridge of its neck and a dorsal fin on its back closer to the tail end. These small fins are almost completely transparent and difficult to see as they undulate minutely to move the creature sedately through the water, completing the illusion of floating seaweed.
Dwarf Caiman, Baltimore, MD
Made by Grufnik
A very, very still Dwarf Caiman (Paleosuchus palpebrosus) at the National Aquarium in Baltimore's spectacular Amazon River Forest exhibit. The exhibit was just being misted by automatic foggers which gave the background an even more realistic feel. The Dwarf Caiman is also known as Cuvier's Dwarf Caiman or the Musky Caiman, and hails from northern and central South America. A relatively small crocodilian with a total length ranging from 4 to 5 feet, the Dwarf Caiman lives near fast stretches of stream, and in nutrient-deficient waters. It's diet consists of fish and invertebrates. It uses burrows as shelter during the day, and lays eggs on a mounded nest which hatch in about three months.

US Coast Guard Cutter Taney
Made by dgmiami
From historicships.org The US Coast Guard Cutter TANEY is one of the famed Secretary/Treasury Class Coast Guard cutters built in the mid 1930s and which saw extensive service in war and peace for half a century. TANEY's keel was laid on 1 May 1935 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard where she was built alongside three of her sister ships, CAMPBELL, DUANE and INGHAM. 327 feet long with a beam of 41 feet, and originally displacing 2000 tons, TANEY was designed for peacetime missions of law enforcement, search and rescue, and maritime patrol. Her original armament consisted of two 5”/51 caliber deck guns, and two 6-pounder saluting guns. TANEY was also originally equipped to carry a Grumman JF-2 “Duck” float plane.

11-shot HDR Panorama taken from the 5th floor deck of the Marriott Waterfront. View the original size to check out the detail. You can even read the banner that the plane is pulling. I highlighted a few of the details you can see at Max size. In the foreground is the Pier 6 Concert Pavilion. 12 hours earlier, Several Species, a Pink Floyd cover band, was just finishing up their encore inside the tent. It's a great place to see a concert. It took me several days to process the 11 shots through Photomatix. I did all the HDR conversions before stitching them together in Photoshop CS4. The finished product was too big for Flickr, so I had to reduce it a bit.
Baltimore Harbour Long Exposure Pano
Made by Dan Love
6 images | ND110 | 22mm | ISO 100 | f16 | 30 secs You must press 'L' and see this large. Spent some time in Baltimore this weekend after the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert 'Rally For Sanity and/or Fear' in DC. The conditions in Baltimore on Sunday were ideal for long exposure photography with beautiful golden light in the morning and then fast-moving clouds throughout the rest of the day. The variety of architecture and the water of the harbour meant there were photos in every direction I looked. A few more images to come over the next couple of days as I work my way through the processing. Lots of editing work here. Original image is 9000 pixels wide.
