'Scene' in Dorset - Muddeford 1/2

This "longish" series comprises a variety of subjects and shots I took during our April visit to Dorset for our nephews wedding.

The day after the wedding we took a short drive into Christchurch and ended up at Muddeford Quay.

This boat is just about to pass between the Quay on its right and the Muddeford Sandbank in the background.  This narrow stretch of water is the entrance into Christchurch harbour.

I was lucky enough to get the boat, a lad fishing and a para-surfer all in the same shot.

A lot going on here Brian. I like the red lampshades

Oh, I feel the fresh sea wind and the salty air - and I like the kinds of movement and the shades of blue in your picture -we are suffering here from heat!
Brian Walbey: It was a lovely fresh breezy April afternoon when I took this Philine.
Lots to see Brian, looks like some serious fishing can be done from the boat as well smile
Brian Walbey: They certainly seemed to be kitted out with plenty of tackle Linda.
2 para surfers and two lampshades as well, haha, seriuosly nice composition

Nice crisp shot. Are my eyes deceiving me or are those red lamp shades smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Scarlet. I'm not sure what they are, some sort of guidance thing I presume.
Looks a nice place Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a very nice spot Michael, but heaving with people and this was only the end of April.

A familar scene to me, Brian. I can remember the old ferry across the harbour entrance being a rowing boat back in the 1950s. The strength of the current at some tide states made for hard work and a long trip! Well done for getting in all the elements of a modern day at the seaside.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I wouldn't fancy going across that gap in a rowboat, there is quite a strong current.
Lots of things happening. Nice shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Albert.
A great area. The chap in the boat is known as four rodssmile
Brian Walbey: Quite what he would do if he got a bite on all four at the same time I can't imagine John.
