    This is a great subject! Since I cannot officially participate, please do not consider my images for judging. However, I have hundreds of photos of ships and boats and would like to just show and tell if you all don't mind.

    1. Egyptian grave yard for ships



    2. Trawler without Water, Chugiak, Alaska



    3. Does size matter?

    Mini Challenge #232: Ships and Boats
    Time's up - game over for the ships and boats mini challenge.

    As Ratty said to Mole in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
    I subscribe to that philosophy too, I lived aboard a yacht for several years and always like looking at boats of all kinds.

    This challenge attracted lots of good entries showing a variety of watercraft in a diverse range of environments.
    The photos that I've picked as my favourites are:
    1. Earache - Before Dawn ~ San Diego Bay
    Before%20Dawn-X2.jpg
    This is the image that makes my eye want to spend time taking in all the details.
    The subject, composition and lighting al come together to create a magical, memorable image.
    Definitely worth getting up early to catch this one.


    2. Pegelli - Rowing through Amsterdam Canals
    i-pLkLJQJ-XL.jpg

    The sight line into the distance and the red inside the boat draw the eyes immediately to this image.
    Composition is just right and the image is loaded with interesting details ofrowers, moored boats, parked cars and bicycles.
    This shot instantly brings back memories of Amsterdammers taking to the cancals every weekend in amazing variety of boats.


    3. Travelways - Delores Ann

    Not the prettiest boat but an honest working boat with loads of character that comes through in this picture.
    The yellow hull and cluster of pink and red mooring buoys pull the viewer's gaze and the reflection just reinforces the whole effect.

    Thanks everyone for sharing your images and congratulations Earache on coming up with my favourite this time.
