Some mighty fine shadows on this dredger--- Love the tangle of ropes and such, as well as the colors!

Love the mix of colors here Mick and the good old rusty bits too, Think you should have nicked a bit of that rope to tie Simon up with when he gets back from gallivanting about

Nice dark and defined shadows, Mick. Good collection of shapes too!

Excellent definition and depth. I really should use f8 more often.

Maybe those two bollards really hate each other, but it's their fate to be forever bound together...

This has all the elements of a perfect RAS shot, Mick: rust and old rope, looping chain, bubbling paint and other delights. Strangely enough I can not begin to describe any of it as grot. Are my powers waning?

Never ever underestimate the power of the sea . . .. . .

Shedloads of ropes, leads and chains to trip you here, Mick. Not the place to wander around after visiting the Leith Dockers Club, even if one is fleeing from Big Aggie!

A great place to be tripping, Mick Tongue. Looks like one of those puzzles in which you have to work out which line takes you to the 'prize'.

An angry sea can move mountains, almost. Blush

Lovely figure of 8 work on those ropes, Mick.
Not even a big dredger will get away from that lot.
I was looking at the Shadows in the background.
I can see a 'P' and a 'U', which also sounds like a good idea.
