Abandoned old barge, Norfolk coastline, Norfolk, England, UK Abandoned boat, North Norfolk coastline, England, UK

I walked past this old boat one evening, and had to photograph it!! I don’t know what the history of this boat is, but it’s been out of service for quite some time!!

It was also a beautiful, calm summers evening too, when I tool this, with wonderful, subtle skies and the lowering sun.

The boat is situated on salt marshes, which fills with seawater during high tide. There are many moored boats along the coastline both in service, as well as these old abandoned jobbies. They all make great photographic subjects….

Swanage Bay, Dorset, England, UK Dorset coastline at dawn, England, UK

A beautiful dawn scene along the Dorset coastline. It’s always a pleasant mystery as to what nature will provide in a scene like this. One of the great things about photography is that it gives you the perfect excuse to just sit and watch!

The colours change constantly as the clouds move in the wind and change shape. The temparature changes too as the sun rises, and nothing stays the same for very long.

I love the interaction here between the clouds and the light, the beautiful subtle colours of the dawn light. Nothing spectacular, and that is what is so pleasant…

I love the silence too…not even an early morning dog walker, just the gentle lapping of the sea against the shoreline…

This is one from the archives that I haven’t posted here before….it has been uploaded to my gallery and one day I will create a gallery page specifically for travel images….

Well, I posted this for the photofriday challenge…link in the footer of this page…for the topic of ‘home’. It’s a good little project that encourages creating some new photography based on a theme, or to re-discover some older images.

This photo was taken during a cycle touring trip. This photo was taken just after leaving a small grocery store having filled up with ice cold fizzy pop!! This family were happy for me to take their photo and the boy was perfectly happy watching the world go by perched on the window frame!
