Balblair Pier

Balblair Pier
A passenger ferry used to go from this jetty across the Cromarty Firth to Invergordon. Now there is a privately owned boatyard full of rusting vessels.

the jetty looks rather perilous! Is it really sloping down in the foreground, or is that the angle you took it at? Nice light.

I used an extreme wide angle lens so I think the slope is mostly lens distortion. It was in a bad way though

I like the wide angle....the jetty looks rather insecure on the right!

There's nothing like wandering round an old boatyard with a camera (so many seem to be locked up nowadays).....

I love old boatyards - this one is great, but I wouldn't step (slip) onto jetty here!

the colourful ropes add another dimension as they direct the eye along the cobbles.. lots of lovely textures in those cobbles too.. the old boat is superb..
seems like you may have quite a few images to explore in this fab location..
