In the midst of a blinding Atlantic Ocean fog, a fishing trawler wends its way into Lunenburg Harbour, Nova Scotia. That’s a fairly big island out there, but a few minutes after taking this, it was totally invisible. I was glad to catch it, to give a bit of perspective to the thickness of the fog. In those days, I used to service the electronics on many of the Nova Scotia fishing trawlers, and having a good radar was a vital necessity.
Taken with a 35mm. Exakta Varex SLR, high speed Ektachrome film, in 1966. Scanned at 4000bpi with a Canoscan 4000US scanner in 2004.

  • Thanks Michael, until the trawler came along, there wasn’t a view at all!Just a wall of fog.

    So tell me George; what were you doing out there in the fog with nothing to look at?
    This is a really great shot. I think its right in there with your best work for sure.

  • Thanks Stan. Well, I was actually on the bridge of another trawler, talking to one of the crew, and we could hear the engine sound coming through the fog.So I dashed off to the car and got my camera, just in case. By the time I got back, this one had just become visible and I waited until it passed the island so I could get both. 42 years ago! No wonder I feel old sometimes..haha!
