photoblog image Tilted vane

Tilted vane

Taken in March from the Wightlink Ferry that crosses the Solent, this is the weather vane on Yarmouth Pier on the Isle of Wight.

In the background you can see the towers and chimneys of the Exxon refinery at Fawley.

Ginnie will love this one.
EJWilkins: I thought she'd like it too smile
1) Estoy de acuerdo con el comentario de Mary!! lol
2) Mirando la foto se crea la ilusión óptica que el tejado está flotando sobre el agua. Es curiosa la toma por ello smile

1) I am in agreement with the commentary of Mary! lol 2) Watching the photo is created the optical illusion that the tile roof is floating on the water. The taking is peculiar for that reasonsmile
EJWilkins: Why thank you Jose smile

I did not think about how the roof would look, I edited the picture this way because there were people there. I did not want them in the picture. It does look as if the roof is floating. Now I'm going to have to show you a picture of the pier. Or maybe Chris (Eclectic) has got one somewhere. wink

Porqué gracias Josesmile
No pensé de cómo la azotea miraría, yo corregí el cuadro esta manera porque había gente allí. No lo deseé en el cuadro. Mira como si la azotea esté flotando. Ahora voy a tener que demostrarle un cuadro del embarcadero. O Chris (Eclectic) tiene quizá uno en alguna parte wink

Yes, Ginnie likes this! It's a bit wobbly but even Winnie the Pooh would like it! grin
EJWilkins: Winnie the Pooh and his Blustery Day?

Glad you like it Ginnie, I'll have to hunt out some more weathervanes in the area, I know where there are a few nice ones. smile
Oh, you've played with lines and it's nice too see Ellie.
EJWilkins: I have. smile I cropped the picture so the flag pole and the weather vane and the lamp post on the right were in a diagonal line. I couldn't do much about the background, when you are on a moving ferry there isn't much time to choose an angle for a picture because the boat keeps on moving.
difficile de garder le nord dans ces conditions
EJWilkins: Ouiu, c'est vrai. grin

Fine image with good composition.
EJWilkins: Thank you smile
Hi Ellie
There is great sense of humour in this shot, probably because of the roof which seems to float on the water plus the stuff on the top which is a little bit bent as if there was something wrong with all that... Really nice shot. Regards, Laurence
EJWilkins: I really hadn't thought of that Laurence. I cropped it this way because I didn't want people in the shot, there were some standing just to the right of the little building.
I have no idea how the weather vane got bent, but it's that that caught my eye. smile
Now I knew that was Yarmouth Pier wink
EJWilkins: grin Thought you might.

Any idea of the answer to David's question ... when did it get bent and why has nobody fixed it?
When did it get bent and why has nobody fixed it?! All the best, Dave
EJWilkins: I have absolutely no idea how it got bent or why nobody's fixed it, but Chris might know ... wink
Lovely composition and colours Ellie...very nice.
Lol, the weathercock is no far to fall down, it means there is a lot of wind there smile smile
