Combwich Wharf (PiP) HFF

Combwich Wharf  (PiP)  HFF
Evening light on Combwich Wharf on the River Parrett, Somerset.

Once the site of an ancient ferry crossing the port was used for the export of local goods and import of timber from the 15th Century. The village was the centre for brick and tile making from as long ago as 1842, and it served as the local brick and coal yard until the 1930s when the creek silted up.

The spur of water that served the wharf is known as Combwich Pill and Combwich wharf is currently being used for the delivery of large equipment for use on the Hinkley Point C power station

The PiP shows an historic channel marker buoy at the wharf.



I have added a song by the Grateful Dead, - 'Wharf Rats'

Une lumière tardive qui donne beaucoup de charme à cette scène printanière sur la rivière ! L'histoire de ce port est aussi très inintéressante et explique bien la présence de la bouée ! Jolies captures, Carol ! Passez un bon week-end, HFF !

Thank you very much Henri. Really appreciated. There used to be a lovely pub on the riverside and I remember as I was learning to drive my husband got me to drive there. As we turned into the pub car park there were Morris dancers dancing in full regalia. He still teases me about the fact that I was going a little fast and broke up their dance as they took evasive action! I am sure he was exaggerating though!! Have a good week.

Cor Carol you must have been up early to post this in second spot! A great scene here and another spot that I have walked in your footsteps too (2009). Love this lighting. Interesting PiP too. Well done.

Ecobird club has replied to Herb Riddle club
Only by default Herb! There seemes to be an issue with HFF and I just tried it to see if it was working again, and managed to post it inadvertently. I am always reminded when we go there that I almost mowed down a troupe of Morris dancers in the pub car park when I was learning to drive! Sadly both pub and Morris dancers are no more. (Nothing to do with my driving I promise!)

Great soft light, Carol, and wonderful, dynamic, pink/grey sky! I love how even the mud gets a pink tinge e the flowers in the foreground add their even more spectacular fuchsia tone to the general "pinkness"! :) beautifully composed too, with your always keen attention to fitting the sky in with the landscape. A painter's eye is what you have.

HFF!

What a beautiful place, beautiful light and framing too.

I've never heard this song and I'm really liking it. I remember seeing them in concert back in the 70s. It was a good concert.

I hope you're doing okay there, Carol. I haven't made it into HFF for the last few weeks. Maybe I can make it this week. Have a good week. :)

Ecobird club has replied to Karen's Place club
Thank you very much Karen and I am pleased you liked the song. I do too but it is not one that readily comes to mind when I think of their music. The concert must have been amazing.

Yes I am fine thank you. I hope you are too. To be honest I haven't been keeping up with ipernity much just lately either. Since I lost my dad last month I am a little short on motivation to be honest. Perhaps it will be easier once we have had the inquest.

Have a good weekend

Karen's Place club has replied to Ecobird club
This is a tough time for us all and I can't imagine losing someone on top of it. I'm very sorry, Carol.

I haven't been on Ipernity much myself lately so I sure know what you mean. It seems like a lot of people are not posting as much as they use to. It's just a really weird time right now.

I'm not sure I know what you mean by "the inquest."
2 months ago.
Ecobird club has replied to Karen's Place club
Thanks Karen. Yes difficult times to be sure. We have to have an inquest as my dad died of asphyxiation in hospital, He had to go in to have fluid drained from his legs but choked and died the next day. I guess they need to establish the reasons behind it as it was totally unrelated to the reason he was there.

I hope you are ok Enjoy the rest of your week and take care.
