Empty Docks/Friday Fences

Whitby Yacht Club

True, the fence is not obvious here but if you squint you can see it, preventing photographers gawkers from falling into the water.

I am linking to Friday Fences here.

Nice composition, the fence looks like a trip hazard to me.

i saw the fence immediately. i zoomed right on in. ha. ha!! neat place. ( : i wonder if at one time it was in a better condition & with terrible weather it just fell apart?

Great photo. I like the rows of grey docks with the water between and the dull atmosphere of the cloudy day.

Love this shot I am afraid that little fence would not stop me from toppling in the water trying to get a good shot:) B

I had to find the fence, I was taken by the silvery wood.

Michelle said...

Such a great photo and one, I think, a lot of people would pass up.

TexWisGirl said...

it's a great scene, and yes, i found the fence. :)

Judy said...

Looks pretty quiet around there. You will have to show us how it looks when the boating weather is here.

Great scene and I do see the fence! I hope you will show us this again when the the marina is filled with boats.

Ha! Not much of a fence. I'm sure I'd find a way to fall in the water. The moody sky certainly commands attention in this shot. Very nice!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I'm not sure if I've ever seen an empty dock like this here EG..Must be an event on or something oui!

RedPat said...

The weather will soon be warm enough to bring out the boats again!

Indrani said...

Good the fence is there else one can really walk into it.

LONDONLULU said...

That would be me, falling into the water for sure! Great moody capture, love the waterway receding into that sky!

Carver said...

I like the barren look of the empty docks.

storybeader said...

that's a great view. But where are the boats? {ha!} {:-Deb

Malyss said...

I would better trust the buoy than the fence.. :o)

Linda said...

What a lovely place. Beautiful photo.

Kay said...

Sort of sad without the boats, isn't it? It looks like the birds don't much mind it, but I'll bet there are a lot of sailors itching to get out again.

Genie Robinson said...

I miss all the colorful little boats, but the capture is still so nice. So tranquil and peaceful. I can see the fencing. It is a good thing it is there. genie

Jill said...

It's a wonderful fence!

Stephanie said...

The splash of red just pops in this photo! Love this shot by the way!

Randy said...

I like the touch of Red.

Jan n Jer said...

Very nice composition in this shot...love the sky too!

MyMaracas said...

I like the perspective here and the way you've framed the shot. One does wonder where all the boats have gone.

Sue said...
