Shipyard by night

Last night, it being a lovely mild evening, I walked home from the Bridge Club across the High Bridge, and saw the dock calm and like a mirror. So, naturally, I had to take a picture for the blog. The Trident Shed Devonshire Dock Hall looks almost beautiful in such conditions. It goes to prove that miracles are sometimes possible!

Earlier in the year there was rather strange phenomenon here late at night. The gulls. back when half of them weren’t busy sitting on eggs or nurturing chicks, were attracted to the lights and fluttered around the shed in large numbers, the yellowish light reflected of the pale bodies so that they looked like gold dust shimmering in the air. Next year I may take the Nikon out and try to photograph it.

Not that many people bother to walk across the bridge. That’s a shame, as there are many treats to be seen for those who take the time to look.
