Edith May at High Tide

Hi folks,

Well Sunday, after we recovered from Charles' party off we all went to see the Edith May floating off her dry dock. We that is, Charles, complete with the pinhole camera, Trev, Sue, John and Ann. we all arrived  and split up taking pictures on our own before the high tide event. We all got pictures from a different perspective and angle.

I went for Telephoto, up close and personal shots.

As you can see the weather was extremely kind to us, which helps with the colours in a low Autumn sun.

Trev found, guess what, a Mushroom so I thought I would show his rear end before Eileen kicks it.

At high tide, as Trev said you could see how far up the ship it was, had to put a PS in here somewhere.

Then it came, High Tide so we all took up various positions to get a different shot. You can see the water around the land Rover on the Jetty.

The first shot the Rudder was well under water.

After a Cream tea, very yummy we disembarked to see the Rudder about a hour and a half later completely out of the water.

Shot at high tide.

Last but not least a reflection shot at high tide of the mast, I liked the weird shapes in the water.

Lots of the shots were very similar so I hope we don't duplicate too many.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite luv Mike XX
