The first harbour of the Fal Estuary.The Harbour limit is denoted by the points of Carricknath to the South and St Mawes Castle to the North. The only hazard to the approach is Lugo rock, which is always covered but is marked by a South cardinal buoy approximately centred in the harbour limit.

Superb quality. The colours of the boats are wonderful against the silvery grey sand. The lines of ropes add a nice pattern and flow to the image.
Kind Regards, Ann

A fine note and an excellent photograph with which to illustrate it.
The composition is wonderful with the boats perfectly placed in the frame and some fine lighting on the mud and water. The exclusion of the sky and the use of the high harbour wall as a background was an excellent idea.
But most of all, I think it is the lovely lines of the ropes which really make the composition. Perfect exposure, lovely colours and excellent detail and sharpness.

I love this composition of swaying boats and ropes, the sense of motion as well as the diagonal lines and curves make it dynamic and fascinating. Depth, sharpness and textures are superb. I like very much the fact that we can't see the other end of the ropes, where they are tied on the quay, that makes the picture very intriguing and dramatic. Lighting, clarity and colours are wonderful, the contrast between bright and dull colours is great. A lovely and very effective photo, well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
