My next photo comes in the form of an old and dilapidated boat, moored at Barry’s Old Dock between the Cold Knap and Barry Island.
My parents always took us down to Barry Island as kids, where we would drive along Harbour Road which overlooked Barry’s Old Harbour.
I remember seeing the old and battered boats down there as far back as 15 to 20 years ago which shows their age.
On a visit to the old Harbour, I decided to take walk over to one such boat and see what photo opportunities arose.
You have to be very careful that the tide is out and trudge through all the mud but the you get the change to take some really unusual photos of a time gone by.
I went with this photo that shows the age of the boat from the faded paint work to the colour of the moss and greenery that has grown all over the wood work.
The texture and shape of the woodwork makes for an interesting point of view shot too.
As I was with family during this visit, I couldn’t spend as much time as I wanted to getting that perfect shot, but I plan on popping by real soon to see what else I can come up with.
Hope you like it.
