At the Quayside

Here’s a shot I took the other day along the channelside walkway.

The tide is well out (but coming in), and the Elainalee is grounded on the mudbank. In a couple of hours she will be riding high.

I’m not privy to the lives of the fisherfolk so I don’t know why the other boats have been moored out in the channel for the last week or so.

Anyway, it was a beautiful day with just a bit of autumn haze in the air. That’s North Scale across the water, and of course Black Combe in the distance with the bracken turning a beautiful gold colour. The building toi the extreme right belongs to Furness College.

  1. Great photo. Looks like a nice day weatherwise too!

    Showing Furness College and the channel reminded me of when I was there in the early 90’s as a VSEL apprentice studying for my HNC (or ticket out of the town). We didn’t always have our heads in Mechanics books and once some of us bet a fellow appo a few quid to swim across to North Scale. Amazingly he said yes and we cobbled together enough money and watched in amazement as he ran to the shore, then onto the sands and then dived fully clothed into the freezing water. Needless to say, he didn’t make it, but got almost halfway before turning back. We cheered and landed ourselves in a spot of bother with a certain ginger teacher. Ace days…and no, I best not say who it was!

  2. What a big sausage!

  3. I like the elements, moment, angle, and the documentary value of this photo.
