Ship's Graveyard #2

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 16 December 2007 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is the second photo in a mini-series of 5 shots that I took a few days ago in and around the ship building town of Barrow-In-Furness which is located on the NW coast of England on the opposite side of the bay from Morecambe.


I've only just noticed that some of you very kind people out there must have been voting anonymously for me on the rating system at the VFXY Photos link just below this message.....It would appear that this blog is now at rated 7/10 which is a big improvement over the last few weeks and that its shot to No 548 in their world listing system :-)

I feel very honoured that you've been taking the time and trouble to do this without saying anything to me but embarassed that I hadn't noticed and been able to say thank you before now.

Anyway a sincere thank you from me for your vote of confidence :-)

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

For purchasing high quality archival prints of any of these photos you can send me an email by clicking here or by going to my website Ian Bramham - Fine Art Photography where prices are listed in the gallery sections under each individual photo.

Everytime I think I have a make a liar out of me...Oh My Gosh, I love this. i wasn't sure what the 5 stars were for, how long it's even been there, I've never noticed before a short while ago and I didn't know who or what was going on, but I pushed all 5 for you 'cause you deserve it :)

@Lorraine: Thanks for the vote of confidence Lorraine!

VFXY have recently made improvements to their rating system to better reflect individual photoblog sites which are getting greater traffic than in the past - I think the dramatic increase in ratings at VFXY may be due to the new camera I'm using as generally speaking there are more people interested in and using Nikons than the make of my previous camera which was a Fuji (like yours)

I've been posting my photos on DPReviews forums for the last 9 months listing my site here as my homepage. Looking at VFXY's statistics for this site, I think my switch to posting photos from Fujitalkforum to the Nikon D40-80 forum has generated a huge amount of new traffic which VFXY's computer must be noticing.

The lines of seaweed washed up add a lovely graphic element here; nicely framed shot.

@Daroru: Thanks Daroru - I think I like the lines of seaweed even more than the boat!
I was very pleased to find this place!

I keep using the word "beautiful" to describe your photos. I'll have to start searching for more superlatives.
