The boat sheds of Lindisfarne

On the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in Northumberland, England, the fishermen found a novel way to make use of their old herring boats. When the vessel was no longer seaworthy, they would upturn the hull and convert it into a shed.

Today, the island is home to a selection of sheds, all of them brimming with character. I’ve photographed the sheds before – always trying to place them in their geographic context. On this occasion, with the sheds facing full into the sun, I decided a simple treatment was best: celebrate their symmetry and simplicity.

All photos shot on Olympus Pen E-P5 using Sigma 30mm f2.8. Processed using the Fuji Superia 200 preset from DxO Film Pack.
