I know the title is not very imaginative but ....thats what it says on the boat.
Taken on the Dee estuary ,this boat has been chained up on the grass bank close to the estuary for years.
the dark moody sky caught my eye as the storm got closer and closer.

all comments welcome.

Good light and the contrasts are very good, but where's the sea.

Very moody sky, it contrasts nicely with the lovely lighting on the boat and the grass

Think a lower viewpoint would have added more drama throwing more of the boat against that threatening sky and reducing the expanse of grass.
Good though.

Very pleasing image with good lighting and atmosphere, Ian.
This drew me into your pf, where I found some very nice work, especially of your boats.

Thanks folks for the feedback,the edge of the estuary is approx 30m away . to get a better idea if you look at the image "Beyond repair" you can just make out LL 280 at the back of the right hand boat.

I love the light just before a storm, it has something special about it. The contrast between the moody sky and the boat are just gorgeous.
