Ladies in Waiting...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...three old boats spending their final days rotting on the shore near Salen, Isle of Mull, Scotland. The light was low but the colour is quite subtle here,I think.

I'm happy to report that I'm getting used to my new small Gitzo and using it almost all of the time, plus the cable release.

Love the subtle colours in this image, Dougie. For some reason, old boats really are very photogenic.

went to bed early last night Danny, always up early the next day.

Know the feeling :-( !!!!!!!!!! he he

These boats may well become another icon here, like the dead tree etc Smile

They are wonderful in the correct light and provide a wealth of opertunities. Only real downer is watch your car wings in that little parking layby !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very atmospheric Dougie.
That's what my dear old mother would call "a fierce watery auld sky"!
