This was taken at North Row on Walney Island, it is right near the end of the Furness peninsular.
Walney Island is a small sliver of land that lie's in the Irish Sea like a defensive barrier across the tip of the Furness Peninsula, protecting Barrow-in-Furness its docks and surrounding areas. Walney Island measures just 11 miles in length and just under 1 mile in width at its widest point, making it the eighth largest island off the coast of England, the largest island in England with a direct road access to the mainland.

Seems the place has some old boats also, which is great to take a few photos, especially because they are really colourful! Good pov and very nice colours!

This looks a bit like a boat graveyard.
However these boats still have a lot of vibrant colours what makes the picture of this small harbour to a pleasant sight with some great reflections.
Best regards, Paul

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats at the final resting place. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

cla nous change un peu de la grisaille de la photo précédente. Beaucoup de déchets dans ces bateaus qui pourtant, séduisent par leurs couleurs vives. Un joli ciel aussi.

Bonjour, cher ami Wilson,
Serait-ce le cimetière marin à voir les épaves englouties par les eaux !
En tout cas, la réussite est au rendez-vous avec cette mise en image où les bateaux en état de naviguer semblent narguer les pauvres bateaux abandonnés.
Une belle peinture marine.
Nicou (127866) 2011-05-08 1:49
quelle compo et iamge, superbe cet ensemble de bâteuas avec la barque qui coule gentillement quelle couleur, quel ciel grandisoe.
Bravo et amitié

Amazing what a cemetery for boats, yet I see a few boats that still seem in good condition !!! An interesting shot of this original place. Good panoramic view with colors and light well managed. Thank you for the informative notes Wilson.
With all my friendships and a great Sunday
delpeoples (54467) 2011-05-08 3:11
Lovely colours, sharpness and symmetry in the reflections. The water looks so glassy, excellent management of the lights and shadows. A really luminous shot, very attractive.
Thanks for sharing
BluSimo (9392) 2011-05-08 5:32
a little melancholic place on which the contrast of the PP does not allow us to be sad. above all the two boats in fg are the two very beautiful objects to photograph. cheers!
have a nice sunday
tedesse (25133) 2011-05-08 8:53
A title well selected for this beautiful image. Image very well composed too in different's plans which give depth to the image. Wonderful natural colours too.
syd1946 (18663) 2011-05-08 10:26
Beautuful composition with all these colorful boats! I like the point of view and the natural use of day lighting!
patdeph (35748) 2011-05-08 11:31
the boats bring nice touches of colors in the blue of the water and the sky.that is enhanced by the beautiful light.
UlfE (14641) 2011-05-08 12:23
I really like your composition with all those colourful boats. Lighting and colours are very nice. I am not sure that all half-sunk boats are really abandoned. In places where it is raining a lot. boat could quite quicky be filled with water. TFS and have nice Sunday evening!
Silvio1953 (128423) 2011-05-08 12:28

emka (84209) 2011-05-08 13:55
Hi wilson, in the note is about this narrow island, but the title suggests there is here the boats cemetery. At least the ones in fg wiill not go anywhere. Very interesting composition, in nice colours, special nostalgic mood. Attractive reflections.

Kielia (24073) 2011-05-09 6:49
this view is very much to my liking! It is a pity that these old boats are not operational any longer but they are still very attractive as a subject for the photographer. This impression is nicely composed with brilliant colors and a fantastic atmosphere. TFS!
RhodieIke (11742) 2011-05-09 6:59
Hi Wilson, Great photo of these poor old boat's,super colour's, Cheers Iain.
s_lush (16134) 2011-05-09 9:23
This rather sad scene looks quite aesthetic in your picture due to its colorfulness and unusualness. In addition, the marina is captured against the interesting background and the wonderfully clouded blue sky. Excellent composition, masterful capture and very informative note!
jemaflor (88199) 2011-05-09 13:56
Very nice with the calm water and all these colors for the boats, good pov.
TopGeo (38206) 2011-05-09 22:51

Ola Wilson ,
Bonita esta tua composição neste porto com estes barcos de pesca , gostei dos destalhes dos barcos afundados , boa luz , bons reflexos , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
josepmarin (57841) 2011-05-10 5:44
it is an image of a very peculiar place, which looks like a cemetery of boats,
The scene of these abandoned boats is a bit sad, because it represents the end of its useful life, but has a very interesting graphism, as well as a few vivid colors.
It's a composition well seen and executed well.
Cricri (110295) 2011-05-10 9:47
Particulier cet endroit avec les bateaux flottants et ceux qui s'enfonce dans l'eau, c'est spécial, colorées et finalement très agréable a regarder
sacimar (26199) 2011-05-10 10:24
interesting place, I like the composition with all of these old boats, the different colors give a pleasant view, well seen,
paololg (31448) 2011-05-10 13:13
Ciao dear Wilson, it is always sad to see the cemeteries of the boats, even if gives a good occasion to the photographers to capture interesting and suggestive photos. You have composed the image in perfect way, with an excellent depth and pleasant reflexes. Congratulations!
Ciao have a nice Wednesday!
COSTANTINO (58761) 2011-05-10 13:15
I liked this shot because it is so
different from the usual scenery
the boats in a different situation
a nice view from this little port
the contrasted colors are attractive
lousat (81124) 2011-05-10 13:47
Hi Wilson,the perfect light for the best colors and sharpness.I like a lot the perfect reflections on the water,a rich and colorfull composition.Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano

immagine con tanto colore in questa baia dalle tante imbarcazioni,
pablominto (53744) 2011-05-10 21:56
Seems like a graveyard for old boats!
this is an effective documentary of this sad view, I assume some will regard this as an environment problem...
A well composed presentation, good details!
pajaran (54169) 2011-05-10 22:13
Vrlo interesantno mesto sa starim camcima ...
Lep pogled preko potonulog camca na luku, mesto i nebo sa oblacima, lepa fotografija.
Dobar snimak i kompozicija, lepe boje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan.
Very interesting place with old boats ...
Nice view over the sunken boat in the harbor, city and sky with clouds, beautiful photos.
Good shot and composition, beautiful colors.
Have a nice and successful day.
All the best.
siudzi (34131) 2011-05-11 2:11
A good shot of this unique place. It looks like a graveyard for old boats. Good idea and its execution. Interesting work.
ikeharel (61491) 2011-05-11 4:59
Quiet place for those boats, like you titled.
There was someone in the past who boghout them and enjoy that way or another...now in rest-mode, some went under...some floating...
Nice and unusual scenery ( as we generally see boat afloat on TE).
vasilpro (41091) 2011-05-12 12:40
Wonderful composition, beautiful view, lovely light and vivid colors, excellent POV, very good clarity, contrast and sharpness.
Warm regards, Vasilis.
siolaw (38292) 2011-05-14 7:23
Hi Wilson *Interesting subject, looking like a boat cemetery! Good bright colours and correct use of the rule of thirds in placing the horizon.
jackart (6702) 2011-05-15 13:15
Very interesting but sad place. Impressive composition with amazing reflections and fabulous colors of the wrecks-boats
Charo (51210) 2011-05-15 17:20
It seems that this place is a graveyard of ships, judging by the neglect suffered some of which show us your photo.
Very good prospect with excellent light and colors.
dkmurphys (51509) 2011-05-16 0:51
Very fine port scene. I like this boat cemetery, sad but picturesque.
Good work, have a nice day.
Angshu (56458) 2011-05-16 6:34
All the boats around here seems to be at their end of their journeys! Nice picture, especially of the sunken boat...kind of poignant mood depicted!
macjake (60000) 2011-05-17 9:00
although the quality lacks a little bit, i love the subject matter.
whats with all these sunken boats? are they all just left for dead? ignored? whats going on here? :)
interesting visual to say the least!
eldancer1 (30826) 2011-05-17 13:32
This reminds me of San Diego Bay with boats sinking in their mooring place. Nicely captured with good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
baddori (20021) 2011-05-22 12:16
Una bella marina ed un "cimitero" di vecchie barche ...
Ottimi colori e un ammonimento per me cattivo marinaio
skippy007 (12510) 2011-05-22 20:52
Hello Wilson, A graveyard for boats that's for sure. Interesting & colourful image with the horizon well placed in the frame, about 2/3 I think is desirable.
gunbud (34066) 2011-05-24 19:54
What a charming little habor for these old ladies of the sea to spend their final days.
Striking reflections and stron bright color to this lovely coastal scene.
sacavem (18614) 2011-07-26 4:20
A nostalgic one here, with this old and boat, and the sweet colours of the past.
I love these old and abandoned things! Absolutely great capture. Well-done
With My compliments,
serp2000 (41688) 2011-11-19 11:29
"this is the end, my friend..." Very sad shot, Wilson. As Indians said, the death is part of life, isnt it?
Anyway, I like this picturesque shot of a cemetary for the boats.
rhinos59 (610) 2012-06-28 10:29
It really seems to be so,for some of the boats in the picture, good POV ,nice colors,
