Early on a winter's afternoon the lights are going on in the Dockyard.


The construction of the Royal Dockyard commenced in 1690, 
and from then till today the Plymouth bank of the River Tamar 
has been home to one of the Nation's most important  Royal Navy Bases.

Underneath the arches


The railway bridge crossing Forder Creek, on the River Lynher, near Plymouth

The railway bridge over Forder Creek on the River Lynher.


The mudbank, revealed by the low tide, disrupts the reflection of the middle arch.
This creates an optical illusion, which makes the centre pier appear to be out of alignment.

Sea Fever


                                           I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
                                           And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
                                          And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
                                          And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking,

From Sea Fever

Crowded Fish Quays


It is very unusual to see so many trawlers tied up in port.
I'm pretty sure they were not stormbound, so I suspect that they are once again trapped 
in port by European Fishing Quota regulations.

Winter Light


A grey day provides the best light
