Out and About: Seahouses

As you can guess from the interval between my last post and this one, I’m a little bit behind at the moment with processing images. However I do have another here from my time in Northumbria a few weeks ago.

This was taken in the harbour of the town of Seahouses where we were staying. As in any working harbour, there were lots of paraphernalia relating to boats and fishing all over the quay. There were also several boats on the quayside which obviously were out of the sea during the winter for repair and re-painting. These boats were supported by blocks of concrete, metal supports or wooden blocks in order to keep them upright and to not roll over whilst on dry land. I noticed the thick wooden supports of one boat and the paint that the boat owner had splashed on them as he was renovating his craft. With the dark shadow behind, the oxide red of the side of the boat above  and the colour splashed on the blocks, I thought it looked like an abstract art installation.

The photograph was taken with my Fuji X-T1 and the Fujinon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. In post processing I darkened the shadow under the boat and saturated the colours a little. I call it Singular Support.
