This little fishing boat, abandoned on the beach close to my home in Eastbourne, is probably where my rekindled interest in photography started just over 12 months ago. I had bought an entry level DSLR, a Canon 1000D and was out snapping a few shots on auto to make use of the camera. I came across Springtide a took a shot. This became my first submission to Red Bubble and I was really encouraged by the comments I received i took some more pictures. A month or two later the 1000D had been replaced with a 50D and now I’m hooked.
This was a winter return to my favourite but sad little fishing boat, still sitting on the beach at Eastbourne. She looked even more forlorn in the snow.
This image shot on 9 January 2010 during one of the several spells of snow we ‘enjoyed’ here on the Sussex Coast.
