No matter the day of the week, no matter the weather, seldom a day goes by without me seeing at least one fishing boat out on the water. Off to catch whatever particular fish is in season on that day.
The fishing boats come in so many shapes and sizes, always providing me with something to admire and just occasionally photograph!
What a glorious surprise it was last year to look out the window to not only see this beautiful sunset but to also witness the silhouette of this unique boat paddling past.
Surprise is the photo challenge this week from the Daily Post.
As I hurriedly loaded the dishwasher before driving the children to school one morning before Christmas, I noticed some coloured lights out on the water. Quickly I grabbed my camera, took some shots and just missed that moment in time.
In my haste of course I had neither checked nor changed the settings on my camera hence the captures weren’t quite as anticipated. That moment of what appears to be pilot ship meeting the cargo shipped, just missed. Next time!
This past weekend our town held a two-day celebration called WinterFest, culminating on Saturday night with fireworks and a Sailpast. This is just one of the beautifully decorated boats that I saw sail past my window all from the comfort of my bed!
Being able to see such a spectacular event from my bed allowed me to dodge both the crowds and the cold. How lucky and blessed am I? Dodge being this week’s word for the One Word Photo Challenge hosted by Jennifer Nichole Wells.
It was only fitting after seeing a wharf with no pier to find this boat so close-by. Perhaps it was waiting there just until the pier was rebuilt, lol! 🙂
These old structures always leave me in awe. The things theses things have seen, the stories they could tell.
Instead it now sits, decaying. It’s time of glory over. As to its future… “mum, how much longer?”
