South Ferriby is on the south bank of the Humber Estuary, a few miles west of the Humber Bridge. It's where the River Ancholme runs into the Humber and has a large lock to allow boats to transfer in each direction.
Adjacent to it however is a very small waterway known as South Drain, very silted up but still navigable for a short section where small boats are berthed. I prefer the drain to the large commercial lock for photographing, it has lots of character.
The images were taken on different visits, hence the change of lighting and colours, and I try to photograph here at low tide. More interesting with all the mud than simply an expanse of water, I think.
