BOATS BOATS BOATS

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
As a kid, I used to go to Brittany for the Summer holidays and really liked the atmosphere of fishing ports. There is something fascinating when the boats come in followed by sea birds and you can get a glimpse of the silvery fish in the baskets on the deck. I kept that interest and always enjoy walking on the quay of a fishing port.

Here in Mui Ne it was so different: the colours, shapes of the boats and the fact it was not a port as I knew it. Lots of activities going on attracted my curiosity and here are some examples (f13 1/100th sec zoom at 70mm cropped top and bottom in Photofiltre).

Im so pleased you liked the first photos of the series started yesterday. Always very encouraging. Hoping you will respond to this one. Thanks for your comments, advice, critique etc

Enjoy the evening,

Jean-Nol

I like the crop in V1, it seems as though you are taking part in the activity.
V3 strong composition, the Coracle is still used on the rivers of west Wales.
Good set of images.
