Some of the scrapped fishing boats left to rot at Salen on the Isle of Mull. A sad site to see but seems like we see this happening all over the country with closures and moving production abroad...
Excellent shot, really need to look at the large version to appreciate it. In addition to the wrecks which have excellent detail, the sky you captured is beautiful, well taken! Spot on! Click!!!
Graphic detail and a sad commentary on the demise of this way of life..
nice shot of the old boats and colour
Very sad, I agree, but it has given you a lovely composition. Well spotted.
Great documentary of a sad history, but thats life.
Nice composition, great subject
Great shot of the sips, very well presented, agree with the state of affairs regarding moving production abroad
Lovely shot, excellent comp. Great story behind it too, got to agree with you, Scotland produces some the of the best of what nature has to offer but we really don't appreciate it.
Very nice. click. John
Beautifully composed image, Douglas. The cloud hanging over the fishing boats is metaphorically spot-on.
A great composition packed with interest
good colourful image good dof well taken click.
Oh....so it was YOU clogging up the passing place then!Bloody tourists!
Great shot of these boats Dougie....having shot them time and time again I can appreciate how hard it is to get a good shot of them! ( I still haven't managed it yet!)
Cheers Angie I just hope that I get the mountains correctly named or you may cast a spell on me and make me live on Mull till I can do PhotoShop as well as yourself...
All the best
by the way you didn't click

A local chap in a Land Rover Defender stopped suddenly for a sheep, I wasn't sure if he was worried about his car or had fallen in love.
Your so right i am Doomed and have been for a long time, nice to see this type of image Doug. take me to the fairy glen sometime.
I'm not holding hands... sorry
Probably the best photograph in your portfollio Dougie, the balance of light and the composition is to be admired...I like the cloud formation which compliments the colours. The big picture is excellent. Have a good week.
Sad bit of social history sympathetically photgraphed.
Large version is awesome, Luv the contrasting colours, framing is perfect!!
Cheers and click to ya...Suzan
Very nicely composed image, Dougie, and very provocative. The horizon line seems to slope to the right, reinforced by the cloud formation, although I don't think it's genuinely the case (optical illusion?). Might be worth trying a CCW rotation to 'straighten' it, but the image is fine as it stands.
it's weird but I tried this several ways, the prob starts with the far shore in the left sloping, and it gets worse each time I look at it.
excellent composition and colors
Good saturation of colours.
Sad story, but this is a very good documentary of what is happening.
