Saturday PhotoHunt - Nautical.


I took this some time ago with my old camera, so the quality isn't quite what I've come to expect. It's still one I like, which is why I'm posting it today.

It's the lifeboat on the stern of the small ferry in use at that time. I've always liked the sight of a small boat hitching a ride on a bigger one!

Many more Nautical photos can be found at the home of the PhotoHunt.
Come on in, the water's fine!

It's a great shot and a fitting contribution to PhotoHunt. I like the "boat on a boat" idea. My PhotoHunt is a more commercial take, but with a Caribbean twist.

I love the little hitch-hiker! I also love it when you see barges with small cars on deck, or large camper-vans towing a small car.

Whenever I see nautical photos I wish I lived by the sea. ;-)

It is a lovely shot and the light is superb - well done.

I know what you mean about thinking that your photos taken with an older camera aren't as good as those taken with your new/current one. But, honestly, the one in this Photo Hunt entry looks fine (and interesting) to me! :)

Neat shot! Lifeboats are usually so overlooked, kinda like unsung heroes. Very good that you spotlight one!

Great pic!! I too love the look of a boat hanging off a boat. For some reason it amuses me :)

Mine is up over at Flo's Place

There's nothing wrong with that shot - I really like it. I always worry about the quality of pics taken with my old camera, too - but you have nothing to worry about. I've not done the Hunt this week, but I'm glad I've seen your hitch-hiker pic. Have a lovely weekend.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours.

That picture brought back memories of working on an ore boat and trying to launch one of those things for a required safety drill. In all honesty we all would have drowned.

What a wonderful take on the nautical theme! I love the little boat on the bigger boat too!

Some how missed this on Saturday - I like the idea a boat hitch-hiker too.
