As you can see I have not got the knack of night shots yet!

1/4 second is not long. However, I am looking forward to the shot that is up to your exacting standards!

Warmest regards

Greetings Kenny, thanks for stopping by my gallery today..I enjoyed your comment and nice compliment on my groynes. You have an excellent gallery yourself, having had a quick trip through..it's most enjoyable..I particularly like your Whitby panoramic..the sea must have been quite calm for you that day.

As for this photo, You are bang in my home ground here..the white cabined fishing boat immediately behind _IRIS'S mast is my own. MERRYWEATHER a 24ft, 24 knot fast fisher ;>) This is the hole in the ocean into which I pour lots of money ;>)

She's a fast diesel engined planing hull of some 46 years vintage, probably modelled on the design of an MTB. I use her frequently during the summer months, fishing for cod, pollack, ling, mackerel and herring. I'm too long in the tooth for winter fishing these days. That perishingly cold North sea air just gets in my bones. Night shots are never easy, I take so very many myself but rarely capture anything worth posting..I still have very much to learn about photography. ;>)

Best wishes ;>)
