Tenby Harbour #2

Yesterday's picture, taken on our recent holiday in Tenby, featured the "classic" shot of the harbour with the tide in, but, as you can see, it is just as interesting when the tide is out.

This was again taken from our bedroom window, but had time allowed, I really would have liked to get down among the boats, although it was a bit wet and mucky underfoot down there.

It's really quite shocking, Brian, to see how much water comes in and out like that every day. Amazing, actually!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, once the tide starts coming in it moves very quickly.
Nice view to have from the bedroom window Brian, and a nice companion shot to yesterday
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, it was a nice view, tomorrow we have a look at St.Davids.
What a great view to wake up to each morning! You are right, too, just as interesting with the tide out. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn, it's one of those harbours where you can get down among the boats, David is going to show some from here soon I think.

Lovely shot Brian. Shame you couldn't get down to see the boats close up - it's always a problem when you're with other people!
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, the one time i was out on my own the tide was in unfortunately. I think they call it Murphy's law!

Incrediable tide movement,one would need to study the tides very well if you wanted to do some boating.Lots of detail presented in this photo.I like it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Vintage, there is a lot of movement of the tide and the boats are sometimes moored out in the bay depending on the tide times.

Two ways you could look at Tenby and have different opinions of the place just by the changing of the tide.. Great shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, I have taken several at different times of the day and tide levels which I am including in an A.V.I am putting together of the holiday.

So much to interest and please the eye. Yes, just as interesting tide in, or out. Superb smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I took so many pictures of this view I could publish a book I think!

LOL.. someone's pulled the plug out! There are great shots to be had of the morring lines when the tide is out, Brian; did you get your chance to get down there?
Brian Walbey: I didn't have time to get right down on the harbour bottom Alan, but I did get a few tight compositiom shots.
Lovely shot Brian, it's strange seeing all those boats marooned!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pat, according to when the high tide is due depends whether a lot of the boats are moored up off the beach instead.

Great view Brian, amazing how far the tide moves.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, I was surprised just how far the tide went out. It's all glorious sand underneath and ideal for kids.

One of my favourite places in South Wales Brain, It is surprising just how fast the tide comes in there as well, we were once almost cut off there. Brings back many memories.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, I noticed once the tide reached the end of the quay it rushed in quite quickly.

Great view of the harbour, well done!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Monika, it is a bit of a standard view but I like it anyway.
