Lobsters arriving

By oldgreyheron      
OK, yesterday I was uploading in a hurry and forgot that I had some images of landing lobsters so #18 is a little reportage of the arrival of some cases of lobster at Bar Harbor in Maine.

In #1 we see the cases being offloaded from the small boat onto the floating pier, in #2 the rather hard work required to get them up to harbourside level (because the tide was low), and in #3 the fishermen off for the next catch.

Thanks for looking, and I promise that tomorrow will not be to do with lobsters. Mike

Keep 'em coming, lobsters or not! Great pics Mike, looks like hard work lugging those lobsters up the gantry. Speaking of which, I like the way it leads the eye into the center of the picture in V1.

Three wonderful images to tell us a story of hard work, which it is to catch & land these delicacies.

Lobstering is hard work. I had a friend who used to be a "stern man". The best perks are having all the lobsters I could eat, and I do love them. You have recorded what many would have passed by. v1 is wonderfully composed.
