Hi Adrian,
I like the way you've framed the boats coming into the harbor. Your excellent light management shows in the excellent cloud detail.

Being a fisheman is truly a special way of life and it's sad to see many people lose a way life of life they love. We have a friend who fished salmon in Alaska who found his market wiped out by farmed salmon. The Newfoundland fishery was devastated by large factory ships that destroy everything in the wake of their huge nets dragging the bottom. There are whole villages that are unemployed.

I had long wanted to visit the Sea of Cortez because of John Steinbecks's book. When I visited it ten years ago, I was surprised to find so many areas stripped clean of all marine life that clings to rocks.

Sorry I didn't mean to get off on a rant, but the sea and everything to do with it is very close to heart.
Regards, Pat

hi pat ,, thanks for your comments if more people went off on a "rant"you never know we might in time be able to get the fishing industry around the world sorted out,, its ironic but the quoters affects british boats fishing in our waters but since we joined the E.E.C forign boats can fish the same waters but with no restrictions
as i said in my notes whitby was once a thriving fishing town but looseing 11 boats has taken its toll
it could be said i am a little bit biased (the emulate is one of our boats and i know how hard it is to get a living wage for her crew)

Yikes!! Sounds pretty one way to me!! Clearly I'm biased too!! I hate see those independent ways of making a living go away and force everyone into little boxes. So you own a fishing boat?? Lots of people in Alaska switched from fishing to taking tourists fishing. Again, not nearly so indenpendent however.
