Hi there John, and thanks for your comments.
Fenit is a small harbour on the west coast of Ireland, a few miles from Tralee in Co.Kerry.

The moody clouds and mountain backdrop just made this picture It poured with rain just after I'd taken the shot.

The vessel was in the process of loading some enormous gantry's, which may have been for an oil rig or similar structure.

Great composition there Gary, I really like this shot. Excuse my ignorance... but where is Fenit Harbour? I don't have an atlas to hand at the moment!
