Taken just a few yards to the right of my previous upload, these two boats are moored alongside Inveraray's stone pier. The blue boat, 'Arctic Penguin', was built in Dublin in 1910 as a Lightship, but has changed her role three times during her lifetime, becoming the Maritime Heritage Museum in 1995. The red boat alongside is the 'Vital Spark', built in Hull in 1944 and was originally named 'Eilean Eisdeal', the name given to her by the Easdale Shipping Company. She was re-registered in 2006 as the 'Vital Spark of Glasgow', named after the stories written by the Inveraray writer Neil Munro who wrote about 'Para Handy', skipper of the puffer, the 'Vital Spark'.
Sadly, since I was last at Inveraray (back in December 2008), the pier the boats sit alongside has fallen into disrepair and access to both the pier and the Museum is closed to the public Sad Let's hope the site can be restored before all become beyond repair.
I have reported my logging in / uploading problem to EPZ Contact Support. I've found I can get around the issue by opening my browser via the Google Chrome App Launcher (which seems a bit odd !), but it seems that something in the Google Chrome browser and something in the EPZ site are at loggerheads!

That's a great intro to your shots, Treb, with lots of maritime history included: Inveraray and the harbour area is a fine spot for images, esp. away from the summer season with it's predominant greens in the hillsides and the bus loads of visitors who get into every view.
Two fine shots and as I like both equally it's 1/2 vote to each.

V1, I want the bigger picture, and in particular I want those reflections. Love the cold, thin, austere light and colour.

As always you have provided one with a valuable insight into this very well observed, composed, exposed and crafted composition Trevor. Your choice and style of processing is quickly becoming a trademark feature, an one which I admire greatly...

Quote: I've found I can get around the issue by opening my browser via the Google Chrome App Launcher (which seems a bit odd !),

strangely I could not access our local camera club and had to resort to Google Chrome only a few days ago and it caused me quite a headache as we had a competition I needed to upload pics for by a specified date. I got there in the end but so frustrating and never had this problem previously either.

another splendid shot from you Trev full of tranquility something maybe we need right nowSmile

Two beaut shots of this tranquil spot. Pity about them falling into decay but they would
need alot of money to keep them up. You would have to put up with the tourist trapsong the place
for doing this.
