B/W works VERY well here! Wonderful textures.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Bonnie, I thought it suited the subject.
I agree with Bonnie - the B&W really brings out the details - and I love the low clouds beyond!
Frank L Croston.: It was the clouds that attracted me, I thought they suited the subject. Thank you Elizabeth.
Ici aussi nous avons des cimetières de bateaux.

It is funny how something rotten and almost destroyed can become a thing of beauty Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed Andrew, I'm hanging on as long as I can...smile
Love the black and white. Certainly something I would like to do more of in my photos.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Ian, I just use it if it suits the subject.Sometimes it surprises.

Lucky you!
Frank L Croston.: Arent I just!
I think you've featured these before Frank. I like this panoramic style presentation and the B.& W.works really well.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Brian, I have indeed.
If they disappear as fast as the ones around here, you must get lots of shots now. This is superb with the straight lines in the sky such a contrast with the curvy lower half.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Mary, they have been there for years, others are scattered around, they are very slowly disappearing, I have lots of pic's, as does every photographer around smile

they look like well utilized work horse boats, Frank grin
Frank L Croston.: In their time they were deep sea trawlers Ayush, working out of Fleetwood U.K. Going out to Iceland and such. Its sad how they have ended up.
Wow, and wow again!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Larry, you are very kind.
