A famous English harbour, a famous English Ship. I have left this picture quite large so you can gather the clues! Here's the first two: Devon & 1580. Enjoy, Herb

Am I right in thinking that the partially hidden gold words have familiar initials Herb? - if so, my guess was right. Very nice harbour scene.

I think folks already have it, Sir Francis Drake is the missing part. Beautiful harbour scene Herb and fun playing name that ship.

Nice harbour, Herb. The Golden Hind still looks good after so many leagues at sea.

Great picture, Herb. So much details, I really don't know where to poke my nose first.

A lot of traffic in this picture Herb! I like it, especially the details.

Greetings, Andreas

Ho,ho, I see I have brought about some interest with this. I shall reserve my title and mapping just a little longer to see who can also name the harbour. I am very pleased that you like this busy scene, of which must be millions of pictures.

To Graham, Mario, Steve, Cal, Norrel, Ingo and Andreas, many thanks for your precious visits and comments. (Sorry for my delay in answering them, I have just returned from my latest photo mad holiday).

Cheers, Herb

Hi Mimi, but do you know the answer? Seriously though, I am pleased that you like this and you are more than welcome to my gallery. Cheers, Herb

Ian Dyer on June 10, 2009

Hi Herb. I don't want to be the one revealing the answer to this. There's a shot in the NPC from almost the exact same spot but without the Golden Hind.

Karen James on June 11, 2009

Hi Herb this is one of my favourite places in which I like to take my photographs, you have taken The Golden Hind very well, very good game Brixham is a beautiful little harbour.

Warm Wishes, Karen.

Herb Riddle on June 11, 2009

Ian, yes I noticed the shot in this months NPC. Very happy you obviously like this and you comment ties in nicely with the next

Well some one has let the cat-out-of-the-bag hav'nt they Karen. Yes, one of my favourite harbours in the whole world! A photo around every corner, I could have posted hundreds here! Very happy you too like it and I shall have to look for your taken from here too.
