...the abandoned pier at Portencross harbour on the Ayrshire coast.
Looks a wonderful place to visit dougie love the comp a cracker nice one
I think the hole makes a splendid picture frame to show of that rust Dougie.
Very considerate of them indeed !!
Best not used as a running track.
Love this composition with the offset gap between the ridges in the background: the pier is trying to make me look at the headland in the centre. Most interesting effect.
Wot...no paranoid HealthandSafety notices/cones/barricades/barriers/flashing lights/sirens???
Like your comp and crop for this Dougie
Wouldnt want to walk along there after the cooking wine....
Where are Elf 'n' Safety when you really need them???
I am wondering if there is anything to stop one progressing to the end of the pier given the defect in the decking? But it does make an interesting f/g and lead in to the view across the Firth.
As always when I am down in that direction the Arran tops are shrouded in cloud.
Long time since CalMac called there...
That hole could be part of a plot in 'The Vital Spark' Dougie.
I'd change my name to Doogie.
Excellent composition Dougie, with a great sense of depth. Love that square hole.
Love the letterbox presentation and the shades of blue in the sky and water, the lead in fits the theme perfectly Dougie
Looking very hard at this, I can't quite work it out. It feels like it needs a little extra something to make it into a spectacularly good shot. Everything is right, but it doesn't quite gel yet...
Somethign needs to be extreme. I wonder if a slighly lower viewpoint, foreshortening the pier, bringing the land acrooss the way closer to the pier end, and making it inot a more extreme panoramic would do it...
Alternatively, perhaps a mono treatment?
Oh yes, you better mind your step - cause that water isn't warm. For sure!
Nice shades of blue all over.
