The turning tide

the tide has turned

I love old wooden boats. They might not be as practical as fibreglass and need more maintenance but they are just so full of character; a proper boat.

    I agree on the wooden boats. So does my cousin, who makes a business out of building them. Can’t beat ’em!

    When you row one you know that you are in a real boat. Nice picture, I like how you have the boat, the sand and the water…great contrast.

    What a tranquil photo of a wooden boat. There is something so nostalgic about the setting – perhaps it is the sense of emptiness in an ebb tide.

      Thank you. It was a lovely peaceful spot, which is what I trying to capture. I suspect had I visited the same spot a hundred years ago it would have looked just the same.

    Old boats are beautiful, even if not practical. They are one of my favourite subjects in your photos!
    Your boat photos are old-fashioned in the best possible meaning of the word – in the meaning of “classic” rather than “old-worldly”.
