Winter Harbor

By oldgreyheron      
For #16 in the series and the next few images I want to focus on one of the things Maine is well-known for - its lobster!

The first image is of the small fishing villiage of Winter Harbor which has a lot of lobster fishing activity as is evident from all the lobster pots and their marker floats or buoys (pronounced "booees") stacked in the fore and mid ground in this image. I was surprised by the absence of the curved roof to the pots as we are used to them in the UK - these rectangular pots did stack very well I observed!

1/200s f10 ISO 100

Thanks for your continued interst and comments - I hope that your patience will continue as I continue to reminisce! Mike

A good crisp image of this harbor and its activities-- I noticed the water marks on the large boulders-- low tide, eh!

This is an image the magazine "Down East" would be proud of. Definitely a well seen and taken composition. We used to have curved pots, but the metal ones, and now the plastic ones took over, sadly. They are easier to maintain I suppose.
