You have created a masterful image here, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Ray, although I tend to think some helmsman was the main culprit.

There just something about old boats that is so appealing.
Louis: That, and also the fact that such expensive items are anchored and rotting up, in their thousands, world wide.
Wonderful image nicely framed Louis....petersmile
Louis: Thank you peter

It looks as if it was once a working type craft Louis
Louis: It is the kind of fishing trawler I associate with owner-operator fishing.

Oh, a rotting boat - and you emphasized its state by processing - yes, abandoned houses, abandoned boats - this is a phenomenon of the poor Ireland which makes me always some sad.
Louis: Long ago, I sailed the dutch canals for a long distance. What amazed me most, was the large number of boats at the canal side that very obviously have received attention too long ago. This I have seen again in other places, the world over. As well as Ireland. I can just wonder that people abandon something that must have been a huge investment at some stage.

Very nice shot Louis complete with a bird
Louis: Yep, Aussie. With full trimmings, there may be a dead fish in the load area smile
Only one careful lady owner

Have a good weekend. Don't sail into troubled waters
Louis: Maybe the helmsman had good knowledge of Guinness smile All the best to you and yours.
Very good image, Louis. This fixer upper comes with a swell weather vane.
Louis: That vane had me thinking, that it would be possible to set her working again. Thank you Mary.

All boats seem to come to a rotten end Louis.
Louis: They tend to do that, gutteridge. It could be a lack of gutteridge.

A picture tells more than a thousand words. How many roughs sees did this one concur and now it is a sad view.
Absolute fabulous shot!
Louis: Thank you Astrid. It is always sad that people let perfectly good boats just stand, but maybe this one is not so good anymore.
I like this, Louis,can't beat wrecks like this for a subject.smile
Louis: No, you can't. It must be the history they carry with them.
I like this Louis... especially with the blue and green colours.
Louis: As a child I was taught that blue and green don't match. I have nos sense for colours smile I just can't help it - certain shades of the 2 colours just match well, in my mind.
Le traitement est excellent, belle photo !
Great day Louis wink
Louis: Merci beaucoup Olivier. It was a good day, thanks again ;-)
It is strange, Louis, that such a sad sight can produce such a marvelous image. Beautifully shot & presented, as always.
Louis: Very true and thank you Beverly
Sorry I missed this the first time round... the treatment is really good!
Louis: That's OK and thanks for the comment, Larry
love old boats ... especially when they're olf wrecks
Louis: Hi Crash, thanks for the comment. They fascinate me too.
Find a creek, find a wreck. An emotive picture, Louis.
Louis: True and thank you, Graeme
