I love the image of the birds on the boat. The owners of the boat may not like it so much. Good photo Herman. I am guessing high tides and storms sometimes--the seawall.

There is nothing quite like an old wooden boat with character to steal the scene.
The gulls add to the magic of this capture…..WinkWinkWink

Composition and exposure is excellent Herman, I have done a mod as the sky is a bit bland so I have added a new sky and warmed the photo slightly.
