Senlack Jack RX1066

Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream

Third in my Hastings Fishing beach series. This time of the twin hulled fishing boat Senlack Jack designated as RX1066 (the ultimate reg for 1066 Country ...). Again I am drawn to how the huge light out of shot has lit the scene, creating this almost surreal day/night scene creating crisp and vivid colours. There is just a hint of movement from the weeds to the left of shot, and the rear of the vessel lining up perfectly on the horizon pleases my eye. Everything appears ship shape, and the boat ready and waiting for its next trip to sea. I have to admit that I feel a strong kinship with the boats and littered paraphernalia on this beach, as my Moms father was from a small fishing village called Bamf on the East Coast of Scotland, and somewhere deep in the genes is an inherited memory of pushing out into a cold sea to fish and provide for the family and wider community. 


Second of my series from Hastings. This time a closer inspection of the fishing boat designated RX403 and its immediate surrounds. I love all the assorted paraphernalia that surrounds the boat from the bulldozer used to launch, nets; new and old, ropes, ice boxes, chains and the list goes on. As a night photographer, I was drawn to the huge sodium light and liked the clean clear light it threw over this scene, enhancing and popping all the various colors into a nice crisp tones, offset and somehow enhanced by the fading natural day light.
