We Are Not Sailing, We Are Not Sailing, Far Away..........

By jaspernina  
This magnificent vellsell is anchored in Lower Pill, Black Bridge, which is in Pembrokeshire.

It's a great place full of really, really ruff boats, most off them falling apart, which is good for photography, & great for the wild-life. However, our local tourist board and town planners want to turn this place into yet another marina, even though there are already two within a mile of here!

Please view large if you have the time.

Thank you for your comments on my previous uploads.

Oh, that is excellent Stephen.
Love the tones and colours.
Planners and committees should all be dispensed with so that common sense can prevail again.
Lovely capture, super image.
Nice one. Annette

The selective desaturation works so well for this. Committees have no sense of what's really important I have decided...

So the rich will have three marinas to choose from ("Private! No Access!", I expect) within a one mile radius, while the poor will no longer have their old wrecks to amuse themselves with. That's U.K. P.L.C. 2007 for you.

A fantastic image, your intro gives it added poignancy and importance.
