Quiet Harbour

 Lonely rowboat

The piers at Port Whitby are looking empty. Most of the boats have been put to bed for the winter and this rowboat was pretty much alone waiting for its owner to take it out into the harbour.

 Gate to Pier 2

The gate was locked!But the harbour was not empty as...

Red-breasted Merganser

a few red-breasted mergansers were enjoying the quiet.

Few images more tranquil than water reflecting off the hull of a boat.

I love that picture of the boat though I'd find it difficult to say exactly why.

Great reflections, but even more beautiful light here !

Sandra said...

I like that boat, she is a beauty.. and cool shot of the gate and never seen one like it, we have them here but they are at the dock where they touch the shore, not out like that

The merganser enjoys having the water to him or herself.

The last lonely boat. Hope someone pulls it out of the water soon.

The harbor may be quiet, but it is still beautiful.

Mary Hone said...

Looks so lovely. I really like the boat shot.

Birdman said...

Yes, and the very end of a season.

Lynn said...

really liked the first boat shot, and the little R-B Merganser is too cute, especially his top crop :-) the lighting is lovely...

Terri said...

Pretty shots! That locked gate looks strange out there on the pier, but I know it serves it's purpose.

TexWisGirl said...

so very pretty - the bird and the rowboat. :) the gate seems odd to me, as well.

Sylvia K said...

Wonderful captures, great reflections and, yes, an odd gate it is??? A wonderful post for the day as always!! Thanks for sharing the fun and the beauty! Have a lovely weekend -- camera in hand, of course!!

Nice light, and great reflections.

Ginny said...

Your pictures today are all about wonderful reflections!! I love the water reflection on the side of the boat, so beautiful. Also the gate reflection. Not sure what kind of duck this is...

Chris Rohrer said...

Perfect fall weather and great find on the RBME! Such a good bird!

RedPat said...

I love the shot of the boat, EG!

Chandra said...

Tina,

Have a Great Weekend!

Peace :)

That boat looks so inviting. Would love to paddle away for a few hours. Last weekend I saw the hooded mergansers out in full force, so the red-breasted is a treat. Nice reflections, all!

Felicia said...

lovely images and I really like the rowboat capture.

Hilary said...

Beautiful, peaceful images. Last November, we had to chip through the ice to get out boat out of the lake. :/

Lowell said...

It's a nice-looking boat. Too bad its life on the water is coming to an end. And those ducks! Did you ever notice they never learn to come in out of the cold. Sometimes you'll find them skimming along on ice! Sheesh!

Stephanie said...

I love that boat shot!

Pretty bird!

I bet I could get around that gate, without even getting wet!

That first shot looks so peaceful.

The boat looks special because of the reflection of water. The last fellow seems to be having a bad hair day :)
