***On the Fishing Boat Bobbing Sea

By Mynett
Taken into the light in the lovely harbour of Aberaeron mid wales, not much in the way of interest to the sky other than the colour. I took the title form lines of Under Milkwood by the wonderful Dylan Thomas who was a frequent visitor to the area. A gentle scene, some people watching the setting of the sun on the harbour wall, Gulls crying out for a sample of the fish and chips which are always so very good at the coast..... so who can blame them. The tinkle of the masts as the boats bob about on the water, the reflections in the water and a gentle breeze, the stuff holidays are made of.


A big thank you to Lillian and Helenlinda for the UA's on this one and for all the kind comments Smile

Utter peace - love your poetic write up. Saw and listened to Under Milkwood by a semi-pro group many years ago and it's the best performance I've ever seen.

The portrait crop/composition works well here--- The dark structures, left and right on the horizon frame the boats and reflections well-- and then the colors, perfect for the time of day!

This really is rather special Linda. The light, colour and reflections are all perfect.I note your comment regarding the lack of interest in the sky but the colour is enough here and IMO the lack of cloud actually assists the serene mood.

The boats and their masts with reflections
make a great composition.
The colour is sky is enough without
any clouds.
The boats are really the point of interest.
