    Ullswater in the English Lake District has a small fleet of ferries that sail no matter the weather. This is one of the wettest areas of England and I have caught the Raven returning to Glenridding with about 100 passengers getting soaked. Ken

    Thank you Erik, Paul and Russ. I often go out to photograph when the forecast is sunshine and showers, on this occasion it was more downpours with little sunshine, catching the boat in place was sheer luck. Living in Cumbria I dress for the rain so weather like this is only a problem when the wind blows the rain onto the front element of the lens. Ken

    Pretty darn cool.  A fun image to look at, and lots to see.

    This is also great! The ship isn’t as obvious, need to look for it a bit more, but that gives it another very interesting spin.

    They’re both fine shots, Ken, but I think I prefer the fuller image. It gives context and the layering of the peaks in the background is very appealing. I agree it can lose much of the water at the bottom, though.

    I agree. The full image is an improvement on the crop. You framed it beautifully, Ken. No crop needed.
