So it is an absolutely gorgeous day. I am wandering around Cobourg shooting some stuff. I land here. The Cobourg Marina. The sky is perfect. The lake is perfect. The sun is shinning. I spot this Dock Cleat, standing with arms spread, waiting. Patiently waiting to support whatever boat comes along that needs to connect with land. It is a simple little thing. Anchored to the pier by 4 bolts. Unmoving in its conviction. Determined to do its job under any weather condition. Dependable to the end. Of course you have to tie your boat to it properly, but that is another story. What makes this photo for me is the way this little guy just stands there. Knowing there is a boat out there, past the lighthouse, coming his way.
The skies and wind-blown lake his companions until that boat arrives.
