Riverdance

By mjsayles  
The Riverdance ferry, beached off Lancashire following the recent storms.

For some reason the police were stopping people walking along the promenade right in front of the boat.

Thanks for your comments folks. I did take some more 'ship-focussed' shots Ron, but I liked how this showed the land-based 'aftermath' (for want of a better word!).

Cheers again.

Weird. Wonder why. Do they think that people will want to throw themselves at the boat if not restrained by the thought of a kindly policeman standing nearby? Or swim out to it from that particular spot? Very odd. Wink

I think this pic appeals because it feels incongruous - and so an interesting photodocumentary pic taken in context with your description.
