The large sky gives good scale to the image.
Sorry my away was Hospital. So not that nice.
Good to be back though. That pigeon is lost you know.

The Spurn lightship; I remember when it was painted red. It seems to have been always here in the dock Annette, probably replaced by the lighthouse.
I was born in Hull and we used to go and look at the trawlers in Queens dock. There was also a fireboat which fascinated me. All gone now.
Lovely reminder

I was going to express my surprise that it was black, then I read Clive's comment about the fact it used to be red! Are they renovating it? Is it still in use?
You've caught it well, I love the reflections in the still water. Summer............what's that?! Wink

Spurn Lightship, built in 1927 served for 50 years as a navigational aid at the mouth of the River Humber. Now a museum she is open to the public April to September. As far as I recall she has always been black, maybe red primer when refurbished!!
PS nice shot, maybe a bit more angle and reflection would have improved it, also wait 'til yellow truck had passed!!!!

Fascinating image; I've never seen one of those before. Great sky, nice warm tone and lovely reflections that I would have liked to have seen extended just a little to include the whole boat.

This is a stunning image Annette - beautifully crisp with wonderful reflections, and here to remind us of lovely summer days gone for now.

Thanks Tim,
Unfortunately I couldn't get the whole reflection in due to the dock edge which would have showed and spoilt it.

You found some good images in the fair city of Hull... Wink
Like the use of vertical format here, it gives height for that glorious sky.

Curiously, despite the black bulk of the ship this contrives to be a colourful image. I, too, always thought lightships were red (I have seen Calshot Spit and Goodwin) - am I imagining the colour while seeing black?
