Brilliant

Where are the ones of the lakes launch taken? She looks almost identical to one of the boats I drive at work. Our one, lotus, came from Loch lomand and is getting on for 100 years old.

Thanks everyone I'm glad you like them. Wasn't sure if there would be much interest on here as I haven't any photos' of RIBs (yet )
They are all my photos' Hightower. Doing Landscape was my hobby as photographing people and weddings all the time got me down
SamT, it's Derwentwater, Keswick. Beautiful spot on the right light.
I'll post a few more before you get bored

This one is off the Welcome Home Statue at Fleetwood. It is dedicated to all the Wives and Children who used to Welcome home the Fishing crews. Sadly many crews never came back.

Cheers, a couple of our other boats are from the lakedistrict. That one had very similar lines to lotus. But now I think about it she originated there before going to scotland.

Thanks,
The photo of the reflected steps? No it's the old steps down in to Fleetwood Dock. They go back to when the dock was a totally commercial dock.
Took that photo lying face down in a dinghy.
