A walk around the Marina

Had a walk around the marina today in an effort to find inspiration for the picture of a boat with a narrow depth of field. seemed an obvious choice yet it never yielded the required image.

It did however give me a couple of “Danger” signs which could potentially be used under the title of A Dangerous Place. Whilst the sign is the primary focus and focal point of the images I left enough in focus within the image to allow any viewer to make their own mind up as to the extent of the danger being warned about. I took the second image, of the sign against the mesh, as a stark contrast to the openness of the first image. Both signs warning of danger yet both in entirely different locations around the same marina.

All the images were taken using my 24-70mm.

Image 1 details are 70mm, f/2.8, 1/2000th sec and ISO 100.


Image 2 details 70mm, f/2.8, 1/2500th sec and ISO 100


Finally an image of a boat with a narrow depth of field. I took several images around the marina yet didn’t like the results. Though they were all images of boats etc etc non of them appealed to me in any way. The image I will post though came from looking out on the Humber and a random fuel supply boat travelling west. Certainly something different as you can see the boat but I decided to take the image looking down the barrel of a pay to view telescope. I also decided, in that instant, to focus on the alignment sight on the end of the barrel and not the boat. Something different and possibly not what most would expect.
