I've been away for a few days to the New Forest and whilst there visited Bucklers Hard, part of the Beaulieu Estate.. I had no idea of it's history or of it's importance with shipbuilding, especially for Nelson's fleet/Trafalgar etc.. that aside, I just liked the last of the late sun on this wooden post and rope. I'll catch up with everyone soon Smile

Bucklers Hard was the birthplace of many British naval vessels, including many of Admiral Nelson's fleet, using the timber of the New Forest. The Hard, under the control of Master shipbuilder Henry Adams was responsible for building many famous ships during the late 18th century and early 19th centuries. These included HMS Euryalus, HMS Swiftsure and HMS Agamemnon, all of which fought at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The industry declined in the nineteenth-century and today the hamlet is given over to tourism, with a small maritime museum, and a modern yachting marina. During World War II, the village was used to build motor torpedo boats and the river was a base for hundreds of landing craft for the Normandy invasion, Operation Overlord. Bucklers Hard was where Sir Francis Chichester began and finished his single-handed voyage around the world in Gipsy Moth IV.

Thank you for your time and as always your thoughts/comments ae very welcome.

Simple and effective, Sarah. The lighting and restricted dof separates the post well from the bg.
