Shrimpboats just beyond the Atlantic surf in the very early morning off Hilton Head Island, South Carolina – sometime in the 1970’s.

Nikkormat FTn with, probably, an Auto Nikkor Q 400mm f/4.5 lens on Tri-X (Kodak black & white film rated at ASA 400). Film was under exposed and over developed (“push processed”) for the grainy effect.
