Another picture taken during a walk around the small harbour of Brancaster Staithe. There seem to be endless stretches of salt marshes and creeks. Much of the north Norfolk coast is designated as an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty and an area of Special Scientific Interest with several nature reserves where numerous birds can be seen.
A number of old boats can be seen abandoned in the marshes.

Partout dans le monde on peut retrouver de vieux bateaux échoués au bord de la mer. Il a surement eu des plus beaux jours mais aujourd'hui il peut faire le bonheur des photographes. Bien montré avec de bons détails.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne semaine,

una foto molto bella per la suggestione che crea questo incontro tra il relitto della barca abbandonata da chissà quanto tempo e la brughiera che con la sua rada vegetazione che cresce spontaneamente le fa da giusta cornice.
L'0incontro di due elementi che sono sotto l'esclusivo dominio degli elementi naturali e che sembrano essersi perfettamente integrati tra loro.
Ottima la composizione ed eccellenti i parametri di ripresa.
Ciao e buona settimana

Was this taken at low tide, or is this an area that has become permanently dried up in recent decades? It's surely an interesting and unexpected place to find a boat, and although it looks like it's been here for a fairly long time it has not yet lost all of its paint. It's strange how decay sometimes can provide such beauty.

Prise de vue intéressante sur ce vieux bâteau abandonné. Vous avez bien fait de maintenir une bande de bleu, signifiant l'eau, en haut de l'image.

I love old wrecked ships and boats and this is a wonderful example of that genre of photography. The strong brown tones and textures attract the eye immediately and I like how you gave so little space to the sky and so much to the grassy/reeds and the boat. Well done, I hope it's ok to add to my Theme?

Charming shipwreck. I like the colors and the textures. Well seen, enjoy a good day.

Abandoned boats are always a popular motive and this a very good picture where the beautiful lines of this dead boat can be admired. There is also a touch of red that gives an idea of who the boat may have looked when it was still alive, floating in the water.

abandoned and sad yet full of romantic appeal and character that just needs to be captured and you have done that so beautifully. I love your crop here with a little strip of blue sky to give depth and yet not divert attention away from the main subject. Wonderful!
Regards - Brian.

Triste fin pour cette vielle barque seule dans ce grand espace vert, elles devait avoir de jolies couleurs, bonne netteté et présentation

old,abandoned boat-no matter how often I see such scenes I´m always amazed how picturesque and charming they look in photos.
I like how you utilized the light to bring out all textures of the old boat.In combination with strong,vivid colors it creates magnificent visual effect.
Have a nice day

Hi dear Ann
Very intersting and unique image full of nostalgy and pasos as your own taste. Perfect framework and reasonable framework as usual. I am not sure but the sky can be cut to stabilize the composition--.
All the best and have a good weekend! TAKERO
PS. Sorry for my dull reaction as I was so busy this week.

It takes a special photographer to turn a scene of deterioration into a beautiful photo. Congratulations and TFS.

loving these subjects more and more every time I see them.
there's not much better than an abandoned boat, vessel, car, truck or building sitting in the middle of nowhere!
love your photo, love the peeling red paint and the muck inside the shell.
some people may fine this ugly, i find it absolutely beautiful.

suscita una strana sensazione questa barca abbandonata su un prato anziché sulla riva di un lago.
Una foto semplice, ma di grande effetto visivo.
