I always enjoy walking around a working fishing port, camera in hand, looking for interesting details to photograph.
And one of the most photogenic ports I've ever visited is the charming little harbour town of Mevagissey on Cornwall's English Channel southern coastline.
My wife Liz and I spent two weeks exploring the beauties of Devon and Cornwall during September 2019, and Mevagissey was one of our 'finds', along with a few other places we'd never seen before.
Anyhow, strolling around the walls of the inner harbour I spotted this lovely little tableau, comprising a solitary rowing boat and bouy floating on the calm waters.
What made this arrangement special for me was the arrangement of light and dark on the surface of the water, with the light coloured rowing boat sitting nicely in a shadowed patch of sea, framed by a bright halo of reflected sunlight.
Just a lovely little scene, elevated into something special by the complimentary lighting.
