A Bollard's Tale

By BertC  
Captured last weekend at Anchor Bay; this image depicts the location from the viewpoint of the pier, at the entrance to the inlet.

The sunset light dances gracefully along the inlet and catches the eye of the discerning photographer as the rustic Bollard settles down for the night ... a witness to so many hidden tales & adventures.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Wish you all a splendid week ahead.
Cheers Wink

I bet if it could talk Bert, it would have some great tales to tell

Excellent lighting, really brings out the detail. Like the white building at the top of the cliff. I bet there is some nice views from up there

This is your fifth upload from that shoot in Anchor Bay and I'm fascinated to see how you have moved around to take each one different. A great lesson in observation and choosing the right viewpoint, I wouldn't dare trying to pick a winner among them!

Bert, it is a pig having to jump down such a long list of well-deserved plaudits; but a bigger pig having missed out on so many quality shots just by being away from epz from pressures of work. As always, sublime image.
