      Thank you so much Brendan. It really was a first try but it was so much fun getting it right. Cheers budddy.

      Thanks Bill the second one was a challenge and I was pleased with the result.

      Thank you tamcry. Can't wait to see yours when your temps go up.

      I've spent many hours in in the dark on the beach practicing these shots. I think I should drive the 40 odd miles and try it in the relative confort of your marina.
      Excellent work Dave, you must be pleased with the results and I agree that the second is the pick of the crop.

      Thank you so much Steve. You would be very welcome, if we go back and get the daytime shots. They do a great bacon butty at the side of the Marina. Cheers buddy.

      Thank you so much Patrick. Your comments are so encouraging. Cheers buddy

          Dave.....these are soooo good. I think I like the first one the best. the dark blue water against the golden glow of the lights is delightful and I like the long, far away vanishing point. Excellent!

            These definitely have the WOW factor. I love the blue in the first one and the reflection on the water in the third one.

                Thank yiou so much for you kind comment Venomiss, it was pretty calm, I had been waiting for just the right conditions. I'm glad you like them.

                      Very nice work bud! That second one is a wall hanger if I ever saw one.

                      Beginner's Luck!!??

                      Just kidding! Keep up the good work.

You've gotten some great linear perspective in the lights and reflections, and the boats with their reflections add so much interest. So well done -- thanks for sharing your artistry with us.

                        First and foremost, HELLO!! It's been a while, and I hope you are doing well and fully recovered.

                        If these images are any reflection of how you are doing, it is obvious you have made a full recovery and are quite possibly a few years younger!! Really really beautiful work my friend. I cannot choose a favorite, truly, though that first one captures my attention because of the beautiful blue sky and the contrasting orange lights. Just lovely!!!
