I have been there quite a few times myself. It's a nice place. It's a Shane the light wasn't playing to really bring the colours out. The problem I had when I was there was that with so many boats on busy my shot was very busy with no singular point of focus which lets the wonder across the scene.

I used to love watching all the boats when I was a child - things were much busier then, but it is still fun to see the assorted collection of vessels there!

Before the war we kids'd go to the fish docks at Folkestone, watching the boats unloading their catch of sprats, a lot of which would fall onto the quayside to be scavenged by us and taken home for mum to cook for tea. A nice free addition to our diet in the days of the 30's Great Depression.

Like that one Nick. I think I know him :)

Have you seen the adult that queues up for his supper at the fish stall near the pier.?  I didnt have a camera to catch a shot. He was there every evening waiting . He gets annoyed if someone  gets between him and the stallholder's line of sight.

Haven't seen that Phil, but I wish I had a £1 for every time I said I wish I had brought a camera!
