Carmi's Thematic Photographic challenge this week is WATERY
The above photo was taken at Cobh, Ireland, and is in fact part of the derelict pier I showed last week! It was a fascinating place, the White Line Shipping Co was based there, and Queenstown, as it was called then (changed when Ireland became a republic) was the last port of call for those emigrating to the New World or Australia. The Titanic called here - her last port of call before she sailed into the icy north. The pier looked fairly large at its non-derelict end, but I wouldn't like to say that passengers actually boarded the big liners from here!
This rather odd looking photo is actually some sort of scum that came down with a very heavy rainfall and washed into the lake via the stream that fill it. I liked the pattern the water made as it flowed into the lake.
And this is the wash of our very large ship we went on for our Arctic Cruise. And yes, the water was that colour!
And lastly, the reeds were reflected against a blue sky in water that was rippling in the breeze.
I think those are fairly watery pics!
