Now you can place the picture. That’s good. The lines on the boat draw your eye to TM. Nicely done.
Thank you Ranald, much appreciated!!
another great pic the boats make a great series well done xx
Thank you Karen, I’m fascinated by the forces of Mother Nature. Will have to wait for spring tide which is in another 2 weeks before an attempt will be made to get them off.
In fact, you’ve dome it again!!! I can’t get the hymn out my head and wil be whistling it for the rest of the night!
LOL!! The same happens to me Ranald, when I wake with the radio alarm in the mornings and a piece of music that I like is playing, it sticks with me for the entire day. This morning it was Tony Bennett with ‘I left my heart in San Francisco’ and it’s been frustrating everybody around me all day!! :-)
Great content!! beautifully executed…
Thank you Kate, much appreciated!!
Another good-un Macky.
Thank you very much, much appreciated!!
“Sky rocket in flight, afternoon delight” is also another good one! Oh heck, why did I do that?
Excellent shot macky, beautiful colours, I like the way you set the ship to the side, excellent framing.
Thanks very much Dave, the salvage company is going to try and refloat both trawlers at 18h00 today, I hope they succeed but personally I don’t feel that a normal high tide is going to be sufficient, the next spring tide is in just under two weeks, that ought to do it.
Love the colours and the composition of this one :)
Thank you Robyn and WELCOME BACK!!!!
