All quiet on the dock front

 

The cranes of Canada dock are quiet in the evening as the sun sets behind the docks..

Seagulls hover
Above rusted cranes.
No more the sound
Of dockside trains.
All has gone,
Everything's changed

Love the lighting in this one, it shows everybody is still asleep and the cranes will have some rest too...

Good composition and lighting. Have you tried it in b/w - I think it might be even better?

Great shot of the line of cranes. Silence on the docks - and in the dock workers' pubs?
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, actually I think it is the dock workers out of a job and the local pubs closed.
