Susan Isaac – Low Tide at Harbour Beach, St Ives

I couldn’t resist the beautiful lines of this sailing vessel with its towering masts puncturing the vast blue canopy above it and the scoop of its mooring ropes, like lead reigns, drawing the viewer in. It dwarfs all other boats on the harbour beach and the distinctive St Ives foreshore itself is pushed back to the horizon. Although the tide is out, there is plenty of reflective water, and a full trench in front of the boat mirrors the sky helping to unify the colours of the composition.
