A Boat on a Lake with Clouds

A boat on a lake. Reeds in the foreground and cloud covered hills in the background.

There’s something about a small boat on a calm lake that just begs to be photographed. And when you add in the backdrop of hills shrouded in clouds and the texture of the reeds in the foreground, it becomes a picture-perfect moment.

Capturing that moment, though, can be a challenge. You want to make sure you get just the right angle and lighting to do it justice. But when you finally get that shot and see the results, it’s all worth it.

A Blue Boat in Howth Harbour

A small boat in the harbour at Howth, Co Dublin. The old and new lighthouses can be seen in the background. People walk along the pier.

In the peaceful harbour of Howth, Co Dublin, a small blue boat bobbed gently in the water. Against the backdrop of the old and new lighthouses, it was a picturesque scene that perfectly encapsulated the charm of this fishing village. The sky was overcast and grey, a sign that rain might be on the way, but that didn’t deter people from coming out to walk along the pier and take in the sights and sounds of the bustling harbour.

All the boats at Navy Pier

Lots of boats seen in the water at Navy Pier in Chicago. A Ferris Wheel can be seen in the background.

Numerous boats are tied up at Navy Pier in Chicago, as well as a small U.S. Coast Guard boat.

This was away back in 2003. I have no idea what the place looks like now!
