A lovely day was had by all in the Cornish village of Polperro. Tide is out (obviously otherwise the fishing boats would be floating!!) and it is lunchtime. Just to mention that I really enjoyed my fish and chips sitting on the harbour wall and particularly enjoyed the four pints of lager I consumed afterwards before promptly falling off said wall!! This photo was taken before the partaking of any alcohol!!

Wonderful shot. Really evokes the feeling of bygone days. I think it really works very well in B&W.

Waugh! this is not your usual 'marina' picture, is it! Where did all the water go? "Out." I like this. Maybe you should fall off the wall more often "D

What a beautiful place. (Hope you're alright?). It looks if there's a (misty) triangle in the right upper part, but perhaps it's just the weather.

stunning! the details you've captured are amazing ... seems like a great little town to explore ... I'm sure I could find quite a few characters to spend my afternoon chatting with ...

Lovely composition! I like how the sailboat in the lower right anchors the image.

My first thought was, Eeek, where's the water!

This tells a nice story, and keeps the viewer in the image for a long time.

Great tonal range here. Glad you grabbed this shot while the vision was still "sharp"! :P (And glad you didn't get hurt, lol!)

Thankyou for your concerns about my fall but I can confirm that all is well and the only ill consequences I received were a dirty mark on my linen pants (nice stone coloured pair, well they were until the dirty mark!!!) and some funny looks off a couple of seagulls and some other tourists!! My camera was safely out of reach!!

That's the craziest thing I've seen(not really but sort of). Looks like a good place to get liquored up! Good shot!

This is a really nice scene and different to the usual water views! I wonder how this would look at night with the lights glistening off the (mud?) bottom. Hope you didn't hurt yourself in the fall... BTW come on over and we can share a pot or two!
