Sharicmar at rest in Port Isaac Harbour.

Port Isaac (Cornish: Porthysek) is a small and picturesque fishing village on the Atlantic Coast of North Cornwall, England, UK. The meaning of the name Porth Izzick (modified in English spelling) is the "corn port," indicating a trade in corn from the arable inland district.

The Port Isaac pier was constructed during the reign of Henry VIII. "...Tudor pier and breakwater have now yielded to a strong new sea-wall balanced by an arm on the opposite side of the cove. The centre of the village dates from the 18th and 19th centuries, from a time when its prosperity was tied to local coastal freight and fishing. The port handled cargoes such as coal, wood, stone, ores, limestone, salt, pottery and heavy goods which were conveyed along its narrow streets. The pilchard fishery began here before the 16th century and in 1850 there were 49 registered fishing boats and four fish cellars. Fishermen still work from the Platt, landing their daily catch of fish, crab and lobsters.

Thanks for your time and as always, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.

Great composition with the rope leading to the boat in the central foreground. Well done.

Very strong lead in lines from the ropes and with blurred reflections in the wet sand: a very attractive harbour scene.
I think Port Isaac is where the Doc Martin TV series was filmed but I'd need to check up on that.......if it is, the old village is so photogenic.

I like the story within the image Sarah. The rope leads the eye to the boat which is facing towards the harbour mouth and out to sea.

Like the way that the angle of the vessel mimics that of the background cliff.

Nice lead in with the ropes and the colours are lovely, deep & strong but not over saturated.

A strong comp and perfect lead-in from the leading edge to the heart of the image, Sarah. Colours are a bit strong for my taste (and it is after all only my opinion), but an excellent image none the less. Looks like a lovely location.

Just what the good doctor ordered, I like the composition and way that you've used the seaweed strewn rope as a lead in
