Off Season, Abandonment Image No 3
WHERE HAVE ALL THE CRUISERS GONE?
Can you imagine the difference in this scene on a bright summer's day when every buouy would have a brightly coloured boat moored to it. At low tide there is not a lot of room for manouvre and you have to know where the deep channels are. They are of course right along the line of buoys so you have to stay close to the boats.
I was on my way home after taking sunset shots. I thought the show was over but when I drove up to this scene I knew I had to stop. Though the sun had been down for at least 20 minutes the clouds were still pinky orange and they reflected in the water. I did actually move the red buouy in the foreground which was in line with the withy, its reflection and the other yellow and black buoy. I figured it would balance the picture up to move it to the left.
