The Bicton Belle

bicton belle australian landscape seascape

Hi Everyone,

Quite a few months ago I met up with Mr Spool and we headed down to the river to take landscape photos.   Whilst we were walking we came across a yacht club so we decided to head in and see what we could come up with.   This old girl really struck me for two reason, she was a bright blue when everything else around her was white and that she was like a dignified old lady in amongst all the ‘new’ boats.   Its nice to see these old boats still out and about.   Even her name is such a nice name the “Bicton Belle”.

I hope everyone gets a chance to get out and about this weekend and capture some awesome shots.

Hope you Enjoy

Jamie Paterson

    I’ve seen this one before. It really stands out among all the white hulls

    Very nice, Jamie. I like the selective saturation 🙂

      Hi Beau,

      Thanks for that. Yeah desaturation really seemed to suit this shot. It really draws attention to the boat. How is QLD going now that you’re back?

    I always walk past the marina at St Kilda, Melbourne and eye off all the boats. I have a huge lust for beautiful sail boats 😉 it makes me envious every time haha

    Hi Charlene,

    Thanks for that. This one was done at East Fremantle Yacht club, she just stuck out like a sore thumb amongst all the new boats.

    Hi Katie,

    I’m the same, would be nice to sail through the South Pacific islands on a big boat one day.
