The Boats of Folkestone

Folkestone Harbor in England is right on the English Channel. Though there is a hotel next door, it  does not appear to be a resort type destination. Instead, it looks to be more of a working harbor. The boats there are not new, but seem to be very seaworthy. You get the feeling that the men who care for and use these boats are capable seamen. None of the boats are extremely large but all appear to be well taken care of, minus a row boat or two that are left aside for later use or repair.

  1. Very nice composition, Tim. I like the way the two upturned row boats lead the eye to the repeating line of blue hulled boats in the harbour.

  2. I love the two old boats in the foreground. It’s as if they are pointing themselves out to the boats in the water saying, “That is where we want to be, not dry docked on shore.” Even with their old and rough finish, it is their patina that gives them character and beauty.
