Full steam ahead till morning

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 26 August 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Just to give a little scale to this the ship on the left of the picture is an ocean liner that carries around 3000 passengers.

Sorry if I don't get to comment on peoples blogs today but I'm taking part in a charity raft race around the moat of the Bishops Palace in Wells. Our team is supporting a local mental health group called Heads Up which offers therapy, art and work related projects for people with mental health problems in Somerset

Canon EOS 500D 1/400 second F/11.0 ISO 200 18 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
