We’ve stayed at the Glenmore camping site virtually every year since the 1980s, and this arrangement of boats was there for as long as I can remember. I’d always intended to photograph it, but never got round to it. I had to spend a lot of time moving side to side to get the tree trunks to align in the best way with the boats, and having fixed that work out how close I should be. As I didn’t want to disturb the sand, I had to start from further away, and close in. Eventually, I found the best position.
The next year, a fifth boat had been added, and the composition was lost.
