The ‘not quite the ticket image…’

Do you ever take a photograph which is terrible, breaks all the rules, and yet you still like it? Here’s an image, shot into sun, badly composed, loads of lens flare, cluttered, lots of grain and probably not entirely in focus but, who cares. There’s no such thing as a bad image!! Maybe this will be the moneymaker!

The Voe Jarl Arrives…

I have a soft spot for the Voe Jarl – something of a cross between a tug and a workboat. The Voe Jarl arrived in MacDuff Harbour tonight. MacDuff Harbour and the town of MacDuff are extraordinarily quiet at the moment with all pubs and restaurants closed because of the virus. Let’s hope we get back to normal soon.

The Lilly Oak on the slip…

The fishing vessel Lilly Oak sits on her cradle on the slip at MacDuff Harbour, Scotland. The slip is a long sloping concrete ramp (image coming soon) used to haul boats out of the water for repair and repainting. The cradle that supports the ships runs on railway lines on the slip.

See a larger version of this image here.
