Another shot from my visit to Walney channel, lived around here all my life and never appreciated the photo opportunities amongst these boats. Will definately be making more visits in the future.
Thanks for all your recent comments and clicks.
Lovely composition and tones. Sylvia
Like the light catching the side of the boats, know what you mean about photo opportunities, I could loose many hours here! Well processed Darren.
The large version is really worth a peek.
Really like the treatment.
Awesome image, great comp and use of the light
Equally as good if not better than your previous, i'll make a trip down there myself if I'm stuck for something to do while the wife shops.
Is it north or south of the bridge Darren or are there boats up and down that whole stretch?
I reckon the lighthouse area is a good location as well.
Just one small crit, the boats seem a touch soft focus though it isn't a partcular problem, probably a result of the processing?
I've decided it's your best yet and my favourite.
Brilliant light, colours and wonderful sky.
Superb colours and detail!
Superb colours and composition. Even a great deal of detail in the bricks and things in the mud. 10/10.
Thanks for the kind words everyone.
John, this is North of the bridge at Bigger Village. There's only a few boats there but they all seem interesting. I'm aware there are also similar scenes South of the bridge but haven't ventured there yet. As for the lighthouse, I went down there for a sunset but the warden wouldn't let me on due to the nesting birds. One for the winter I guess.
PS. If you look at yesterdays upload you can see these two boats in the background catching the light.
Lovely treatment and composition. Excellent stuff.
Love the colours, the light and composition, Darren, some lovely detail in large version.
I'm looking at the two large boats. I like the way they lean toward each other, they appear to be going in different directions and so could be going round in circles. This I think makes a great composition and so I wonder if it might be better with the LHS cropped.
Everything else about the image is great.
Hope this helps Darren.
Nice tones and textures, lovely use of light.
Another great shot Darren, the light and the sky is very nice indeed

Wonderful shoreline image this, colour tone perfect for me, nice one Darren..........Bev
Lovely work Darren, just spotted this and a well deserved EC. Composition and lighting superb - brilliantly done.
Nice image. Regards. Stephen
lovely lighting on the boats, very nicely composed
Excellent image, great colour depth, I.can live with the slight softness as not every image requires to be pin sharp to make a landscape work, scrutiny can be taken too far sometimes, as I said Darren great shot.
Thanks Bev. The actual shot is pretty sharp but I lost it here when I shrunk it for upload to epz. Nowadays I tend to sharpen after I have reduced the size.
I started scrolling down yesterday and have at last come to the end.
This shot is fantastic.
Incredible.. great shot.
How did i miss this, stunning use of the light.
