Just Add Water, HFF

Just Add Water, HFF
Porlock Weir is a small harbour on the Somerset coast, When the tide goes out everything is left high and dry until the next one. Note the two stacks of sandbags ready for deployment should the need arise

Large please

My link for Sight and Sound, is the beautiful "Harbor Song" by Suzanne Vega, www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqsn1WlkA4Y

Roger!HFF to you and thank you for this so impressive image of boats waiting for the next high tide in a lovely Somerset little harbour!
In this silent waiting of the boats ,in my opinion, you strikingly depicted a sort of sweet and patient melancholy
Well: English is not my own language and maybe I didn't succeed in expressing the emotional impact you gave to me!
Bellissima!... anyway:-)

Nice capture Roger; the scenario I recall most from Porlock is the testing drive up 'that hill' back in the '50s. The days when locals came out to watch with some glee as the old cars attempted the hill climb and passengers got out to help with a push!

Thank you Roger, after early retirement I found my way into the accident recovery business and part of our patch included Porlock (which is the steepest A road in the country) and Countisbury Hills, had a few spectacular picks from both,
