Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Recently, I have been posting photographs from Cambridge but not far away is the delightful city of Ely.

Ely was always known as the Isle of Ely because it existed on 23-square-mile clay island which, at 85 feet (26 m), is the highest land in the Fens. It was due to this topography that Ely was not waterlogged like the surrounding Fenland, and was an island separated from the mainland.

Now that the fens have been mainly drained, Ely is no longer an island but it does have a marina on the Great Ouse River.

The marina, was calm and serene, very much like the city and very different from Cambridge, which was throbbing with tourists.

I liked this view, the colourful features of the buoy and hammock catching my eye.

There were lots of weeping willow trees around the marina, possibly creating this sense of calm!

I will add a wider view as a workshop.

Have a good Sunday,
Bev :-)
