32/52 for the group T189ers photo-a-week

This week's theme was: Panorama

We've just been away for a couple of days down to the Forest of Dean. We travelled on the Forest of Dean railway from Parkend to Lydney and after alighting from the train, we walked down the footpath to the newly restored harbour.

The Severn Estuary is very tidal, so there are lock gates to control access to the harbour and to prevent flooding upstream.

Obviously the harbour basin isn't really banana shaped; that's due to me pivoting on the spot as I took the series of photos, but I think it gives a nice impression of the harbour.
