This is the port of Falmouth on the south coast , about 6 miles from my home. I make regular visits here as there are always plenty of photo opportunities . Falmouth is the third largest natural harbour in the world. The first shot shows a view accross the harbour towards the Carrick Roads, to the right of the large Green cargo ship is Falmouth Ship Repair, where repairs and refits are carried out in the three dry docks.
Picture two shows the cargo ship Safmarine Europe about to leave No 3 dry dock after her refit.
The final picture is of Coombe Creek on the river Fal at 5am one summers morning. Believe me there is nothing more peaceful or beautiful than to be here in the early morning and see the sun come up.
