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!!!

Beautifully composed image, Douglas. The cloud hanging over the fishing boats is metaphorically spot-on.

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.

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.
