Who pays the ferryman? by inthecloud5

Who pays the ferryman?

This is while we were waiting for the ferry to take us to the other side to visit the remote north west corner of Britain, Cape Wrath. Rather liked the light and dark so decided to process it in b&w using silver efex.

The ferryman came, got into a small boat and rowed himself out to a dinghy anchored in the water, started up the motor and sailed out to this boat, which is the ferry. Apparently he follows the same routine every time he takes passengers across this stretch of water, which he has done for the past 30 years.

We paid him the fare and off we went, 8 of us in the boat for the 5 minute crossing to the other side, where there was a minibus waiting to take us on the hour long journey to the lighthouse, 11 miles along an bumpy track.

This is what we saw at the end of the road


Cape Wrath is a wilderness, used by NATO as a military training area. It's also a protected area for wildlife, as long as they don't get in the way of the military they are completely undisturbed.

An hour at the lighthouse and then the return trip in the bus and ferry back to where we started.
Neat b&w shot and narrative

This looks very foreboding. Great mood. Sounds like a very unspoilt place.

A very moody shot. Lovely contrasts across the b&w tones.
