The annual race around the Isle Of Wight in Hampshire. This was taken from the Lymington to Yarmouth Ferry.
Two day dinghy fest. Various RS classes taking part. The sun shone, and there was a light breeze – needed a bit more to get some serious action. More pictures on Flickr
I was out taking photos by the coast, and found a number of fishermen that are trundling across the sea in these. They’re very well equipped. Some seem to have foot pedals, which clearly is a must if you want to move and fish at the same time. They even had electronic fish finders fitted to them. I overheard one fisherman explaining to someone that his wife didn’t actually know how much he had spent… and wouldn’t be too happy if she found out. Still, it looks like a lot of fun.
I love this. This was created by two of the countryside volunteers at the National Trust’s Mottisfont House and Gardens in Hampshire. It’s mother nature at it’s best. These are posts that have been sitting in the river for… well I’m not sure how long for. The bottom of the posts which were in the mud have been preserved and the tops which were out of the water haven’t been touched, but the middles have been worn away by the relentless flow of the river. I think this is fantastic.
