Carrickfergus Harbour - Audacious & an Old Friend / by admin

Recently I visited Carrickfergus Castle and Harbour.  When I arrived I was totally suprised to see Audacious and her Old Friend in dry dock in the Harbour  

Old Ships in Carrickfergus Harbour

This looked very precarious to say the least! Two days later when I returned to the Harbour, the larger ship had fallen over!  That is what makes the presence of the people in this shot so important, they are totally oblivious to the danger they are in.

I just loved the textures and colours in this shot.  My favourite colours are (strangely..) black and everything in the "teal" range, those greeny blues.  So when I saw this I knew I needed to photograph this on in colour!  They were truly amazing.  Because I know nothing of them really, I've no idea how long they will be there!

This is a shot of the second ship and it captures the feeling of decrepide decay and the sense that this ship has not seen good times for many years!  I just love the textures fighting their way to the  surface!

Finally I managed to get another lovely shop inside the curve of the harbour itself.  The sky was wonderfully dramatic!


Thanks for taking time to look at my work.  If you like it, please send others to my site and blog... much appreciated ;)
