Slowly…back to nature

CUMBRIA

Every so slowly…Rotting Away on the Beach

High above normal tide level and left to rot. Sea Holly and Bind Weed already at home within the hull.  I guess this once cared for vessel had provided a good income for one of the local in-shore Fishermen of whom few now exists.

I know nothing is ever permanent but somehow it always seems such a loss when its an old boat.

  1. A beautiful image, very painterly, great composition. I’m also attracted to the photographic possibilities of old boats, but they are always tinged with sadness.

    • I know exactly what you mean…..maybe it is because Fishermen and Sailors have a great deal of real affection for their boat however big or small…..even attaching a female gender to them. So maybe it that real feeling of a lose of a life.
