Harbour boats

By ColleenA
Morning all...I decided to drive down to Hout bay yesterday, about a 45 minutes drive from cape Town. The harbour is mainly used for fishing boats and pleasure cruises to seal island. The mountains in the background are the start of the famous Chapman's peak drive, where you get amazing views of the sea.The other two images are close ups of this green fishing boat in the foreground.....have a great day...its a perfect day in Cape TownGrinGrinGrin

What an awesome set Colleen. I love Hout Bay the heart of the fishing industry. The way you have composed V1 is fantastic and the theme of the boats in your set is superb. The heart of Snoek and Yellow tail. Brings back great memories of the fabulous dive sites like the Moari. Awesome diving and great wrecks to see. Hmm the restaurants lol I am hungry. You should be proud of this effort as now your course is over and you can do photography for yourself I expect lots more like this. Francis Drake said. The fairest cape in all the World but what he didnt say was that its a photographers Dream...John

Only 45mins away... wonderful. The slightly elongated format looks nicely balanced with the line of boats leading back to the hills.

Stunning composition Mrs!!!!!Grin I see you have a hint of cloud in the sky; I will send some more over to keep your lonely ones company. There is something about harbour shots that always make me feel good.

A wonderful trio. What appeals to me the most is the stages of production from the long shot to the close up and personal
