Two men in a boat.....!


Last night I took advantage of the fact that it wasn't raining and nipped down to the  Boat Harbour to take that night time shot of the lighthouse, this time with tripod! The bright security lights glaring in all the wrong places.. for photography, probably not for security, still posed a bit of a challenge. The shot above made me smile because not only does it look like I've captured a hovering spaceship..hmmm! maybe I have, but what about the ghostly fishermen in their wee boat, oh how I wish there had been three of them :) On the subject of fishermen, I couldn't resist snapping the two below cleaning their catch right under the 'No Fishing' sign..what sign? My computer is running super slow so I'm going to avoid the frustration, turn it off and catch up today. Hope you've had, or are having a fab weekend, take care and stay safe.....

  3. Very beautiful......bad fishers!!! You now have evidence:) There is something about water at night. It's got a special quality to it. I grew up on a very large lake known as Michigan. We have lighthouses and all of that fun stuff that go with the water. Good times!

  4. Wonderful pictures.
    The Lighthouse is a beauty.
    That looked like a spaceship.
    No fishing signal ... seems to be ignored.
    Hugs and kisses.

  6. They must have figured the game and fish department would not be checking at night. They did not anticipate you and your camera.

  12. You caught them red handed! I love the otherworldly glow of these nightshots and, hmmmm, that UFO-y shape looks pretty otherworldy to me too!:)

  13. The night shots of the lighthouse are glorious Grace. Nice to see the fishermen obeying the rules. Try bribing your lazy computer with ice cream or chocolate - it works on me.

  15. A no fishing sign is a good sign that a lot of people think it's a good spot to fish... if that makes sense.

  16. Oh but obviously they caught them someplace far away. The tower looks like an oil derrick to us. Hope Oz isn't getting caught up in fracking like all over this country. Watch out or your drinking water will catch on fire.
