On a dull day of low cloud the red doors of the lifeboat station stand out strongly against the grey tones of wood, stone, water and sky.

It’s a style of lifeboat station quite common round the British coast. This one was built in 1930 replace an old stone building on the other side of the river. The long roller ramp means an easy launch whatever the state of the tide.

I especially like the water in your first shot, Judith.

Thanks for your comment, Robin. I felt the water looked rather solid!

I understand what you mean but viewing it with a painter’s eye, it was the little ripples catching light on the edges that prevented the water from looking too solid

I like the color combination and can just imagine a boat rolling down that ramp.
